Peter G. Engelman, a retired CPA and prolific writer, has compiled his very interesting life into a personal biography. Engelman, the son of Czech immigrants fleeing Hitler in 1939, describes his family's struggle in coming to America. From dank London bomb shelters during the German Blitz to a rural farm on the outskirts of Atoka, Oklahoma, to his modest beginnings in Baltimore, the author revisits his remarkable journey and recounts a life full of physical and emotional challenges.

The author of this autobiography, a spiritual Jew, has come to know God as a transcendent authority that although not immanent, plays a very active role in all of the events of his life, guiding him to do what is ethical and right, not only through traditional teachings of the Torah, but through the goodness inherit and presented in and by other human beings.

Throughout the autobiography, the author relates his spiritual self by relating the internal emotional struggles of a life begun under the blanket of war. Leaving the destruction behind, Peter and his family set sail for America, determined to seed a new life away from the diabolical plans of Hitler's Third Reich. Not without physical, economic and emotional challenges, the Engelman family turned the corner with its arrival in Baltimore Taking advantage of the opportunities offered by their new homeland, the family became entrepreneurs and climbed the ladder of success, slowly, but surely.

It is not surprising that a family exposed to Hitler's cruel Naziism and bombardment would succumb to some type of post traumatic stress disorder. The Engelman family carried in their hearts the horrible memories and guilt of families left behind; of parents, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles exterminated in brutal concentrations camps only because they were Jews. The author revisits his childhood and some of the memories he grew up with as a result of this trauma. 

A serious book, "And Time Goes By," chronicles a life filled with desperation and dreams, adversity and adventure and struggles and survival. You may not relate to some of the stories told but you will be inspired by the strength and fortitude of the writer.
