In March 2023, Ms. Loris Edwards (who is in her nineties) published her memoir Journey from the Land under the Cross, which details her life in East Germany prior to, during, and after World War II and the Russian occupation.
Shortly after the publication of her awe-inspiring story, she and fellow author and friend Karl Kuykendall (author of Faith & Perseverance: The History of the Catholic Church in Central Texas) teamed up to market their books. They signed and sold over 50 copies between them at the St. Mary's Parish Festival in Temple, TX.
Their fellow parishioners supported them well that day, and with over 1,000 people in attendance, they were able to get the word out about their works. In subsequent weeks, orders ramped up for both Kuykendall and Edwards.
If you have a chance, please support Ms. Edwards' lifelong work and keep the history of previous generations alive!
