5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE STORY OF ONE AMERICAN FAMILY By Maralee Lowderon, July 11, 2016. This book is fascinating on many levels. It's a family history going back three generations on both sides, one side coming from Greece, the other side coming from France. The two families are joined when the US troops freed the citizens of Nice, France from the oppression of Hitler's army during the Second World War.The love story between the beautiful French 17 year old girl and the young US soldier of Greek heritage reminded me of the photo of the American Sailor tilting a young woman back into a most impressive kiss at the end of the war. The love they shared was intense, while still being sweet. I have read so many books about WWII, but never one that showed what it was like for the citizens of a country under siege so graphically.This book could not have happened had the author, Marianne Aleck, not found her mother's journal, as well as the letters the two lovers sent to one another during their courtship. Ms. Aleck researched both sides of her family back three generations, before either side had left their home countries, giving her readers a complete, well formed, picture of the circumstances that lead up to her own youth.This book relates the unvarnished story of a most remarkable group of people. I feel blessed to have been invited into their lives, seen their photos, and learned of their unique personalities. https://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Club-Marianne-Aleck-ebook/dp/B019DQ5DXA#nav-subnav
