If only we could go back in time and change the course of history.
Wow, how many of us have wished that we could do just that. Of course we all know it’s impossible to change the past yet we must live with the future.
When I began to write the Rubies Saga it started out as a short story about my grandmother’s journey from Norway to America in 1913. My mother and I sat down over a cup of thick black Norwegian coffee and discussed the events that took place. My own mother was telling me the story in the hopes that I wouldn’t repeat the same mistakes as my grandmother before me. What I didn’t know then was that it was already too late. By now I had added another link to the chain of tragedy that had encompassed my grandmother as well as my mother.
Unfortunately, few of us realize how the little things we do every day and the important decisions we make because of those choices can eventually lead us down a pathway of destruction from which there no turning back.
The conversation with my mother turned out to be a real eye opener and if you tune in for next week’s review you’ll see how Kaja’s story and its tentacles reached into lives of four generations.
