About the Book

To achieve anything in life an individual needs perseverance and hope. Nothing must deter one from their dream. This is a story of one man's struggle, courage, tenacity and good luck. This story reflects human strengths and weaknesses across three generations. It is a story of the writer's ambitious mother and his father's dedication to family, even at the risk of his own life. It's a story of the writer's own struggle from childhood to college, his penniless journey to the United States with his ambitious wife, where together they forged a happy and prosperous life.
