Passage:  economic turmoil, two wars, threats to American democracy.  Early 21st Century?  No.  Mid-20th Century.

 

Passage, set against the backdrop of Lorain, a steel town in northeastern Ohio, is a riveting true narrative of the mid-20th Century that bears uncanny similarities to today’s headlines.

 

In real time, Grace describes in her personal journals the struggles during the Great Depression; witnessing a murder; World War Two and the Korean War: the first with unconditional public support and the second with public indifference; letters from the soldiers that are poignant and timeless; and the emergence of a Cold War that pits Communism against Democracy.  Grace becomes immersed in this ideology conflict as an undercover agent for the FBI.   She leads this secret life largely unknown to her family and friends.

 

Passage by Sandy Powers is an incredible true story of Grace Balogh and her courage during a turbulent time in American history.

 

 

 


Excerpt

Pvt. Richard Porostovosky
Somewhere in France
Nov. 15, 1944

Dear Grace,
I don't know who owes who a letter. We were moving so much lately and sending mail was kind of hard. Now we stopped and are facing the enemy. I'm writing this from my little foxhole which is home for a while. I finally got to where I've wanted to be for a long time. Here, where I can give these Jerries my 2 cents worth.
The weather here is lousy. It's cold and rainy. Why, I even have cold running water in my foxhole. All the conveniences here, I'd say. Of course, I've changed my pink lace curtains for a shiny red curtain today. It brightens up the home a little.
I feel all right except for a slight cold that I've had since I hit France. This weather isn't helping out either. Oh, well, what more could a man ask for than the life of an Infantryman in the winter. Brr! I hate to think how cold it will be. Oh, well, it can't last much longer.
Tell the kids I said "Hello" and that I'll come to play my guitar for them someday soon. Then we'll have the old gang together and will make up for lost time. O.K.? Boy, I sure miss those rip-roaring parties. Wait until this is over and then boy will we have fun. We'll have a newcomer, too. Toby will be with me wherever I go. She's a swell kid!
So until the next time, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Your Pal,
Porky
