Clark and her new book at Toadstool
Edie Clark will be at the Toadstool on Saturday to introduce and sign her new book, “What There Was Not To Tell: A Story of Love and War.”
“There isn’t much to tell,” Clark’s father would say of World War II. But after her parents died bags and boxes full of letters revealed a story as rich and strange and heartbreaking as a fairy tale. Before the war two young men loved her mother. Both wanted to marry her, and both went off to war. When she finally decided which she would wed, she wrote to tell him, but the letter came back stamped “Deceased.” After the war she married the other. In her search for answers, Clark has uncovered a story both tragic and triumphant.
This event is free and open to the public.
