Our story begins (continued)
The depressed mother begins to include her children in her suicidal plans, but the resourcefulness of a desperate father allowed the family to escape Austria and embark upon a new life in America. The decades that follow depict an ambitious young man whose poverty stricken family started their new life in a working-class Chicago neighborhood with $10.00 between the four of them.
After two failed marriages and two beautiful yet troubled, children, Peter was fortunate enough to meet a woman who embraced him and whose family accepted him with the excessive baggage of his past. With the death of his mother and an eerie encounter with a photograph of a youthful Karla, Peter is able to make the final leap to a new world of trust and thanksgiving.
