Holocaust and atomic bomb survivors' true love story "Meant to Be" wins GOLD book award

By: PRLog

In the award-winning book, Meant to Be: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit, author Roslyn Franken reveals the story of her parents' awe-inspiring survival, love and triumph over tragedy as Holocaust and atomic bomb survivors.

SPRING HILL, Fla. - March 1, 2022 - PRLog -- Roslyn's mother survived the concentration camps in Nazi Europe while her father survived the Nagasaki atomic bomb as a prisoner of war in Japan. How did they survive captivity continents apart to eventually meet, marry and make a beautiful life against all odds? That is what Roslyn tells in her book, Meant to Be, recent GOLD winner of the Nonfiction Book Awards from the Nonfiction Authors Association. The book, published by 10-Q Publishing, is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.

Roslyn wrote this book to help people: Learn about the kind of hate her parents experienced and what it can lead to if we don't stop it; Embrace a greater spirit of interfaith and interracial tolerance; and be inspired toward greater hope, resiliency and positivity in facing their own life adversities.

Official NFAA Editorial Review

Roslyn Franken's Meant to Be is inspiring. That is seen immediately from the Table of Contents as the chapter titles lay out on the page an overview of two lives in a way that takes readers' breaths away. In the Introduction and in the pages to follow, Franken recounts the story of her parents, John and Sonja, as they live through unimaginable, nightmarish, life-threatening events with courage, bravery, and resilience. The inclusion of beautiful family photos pulls the reader into the story of these two incredible souls as they live their separate lives, then meet and begin a letter-filled courtship that changes their lives forever. Countless life lessons follow, and these eventually influence and help the author through her own challenges in later years. Franken leaves readers with a treasure trove of uplifting words of wisdom related to Power of Choice and Power of Perseverance, citing how her parents used both throughout their lives, and how she herself exercised that power in her own life. A beautiful, moving book that will touch the heart.
