Local author Vincent dePaul Gisriel, Jr. will visit Greetings & Readings on Saturday, June 15 from 1 to 3 p.m. to share the story of his parents during World War II and to sign copies of Hearts Away, Bombs Away.

Hearts Away, Bombs AwayFollowing the death of his father (a World War II veteran), Gisriel discovered the true story of this real American war hero. Along the way, he also found a beautiful love story.

Culled from family research and hundreds of hand-written letters, Gisriel's Hearts Away, Bombs Away is a story of one man's service in the Army Air Corps and the beautiful love story that flourished, through even the most trying days of war.

Said the author, "Yes, this is a love story as revealed through my parents' letters, but it is also the story of a real American hero and the woman who stood beside him. I am so proud of both of them and I love them deeply."

Gisriel dedicated his book to Martha and Vince Gisriel, Sr. for all they endured during World War II. It is also dedicated to all who serve our nation in the military: past, present and future.

It is especially dedicated to all those who have given their lives in defense of our country, to those who have been wounded, to those who have been prisoners of war and to all who are still missing in action.

Order Hearts Away, Bombs Away before the author's appearance and request a personalized, autographed copy from the event at no extra charge.
