THE WOODEN SUITCASE: LETTERS OF A CANADIAN SOLDIER IN WWII

Author: Cheri-Lynn Oldham

Synopsis: Cheri knew that her Grandfather, Al Williams, had fought in the Second World War. She knew he was Dr. Alan (Al) Williams, an optometrist. Then, one day, Al told her about the wooden suitcase in his basement containing letters he had written his parents from overseas. Cheri set up her tape recorder and recorded her grandfather reading them aloud, adding his comments.

Al Williams died in 2009, at the age of 85. Because of Cheri’s love and admiration for him, this book of letters adds one more small piece to the many that make up the mosaic of World War II.
