Breaking the Code: A Father's Secret, A Daughter's Journey and the Question That Changed Everything #BreakingTheCode
Karen Fisher-Alaniz
This double memoir is two unique but intertwined stories: the story of a daughter's struggle to forge a relationship with her elderly father and the story of that father's World War II experiences. Karen's father told her stories of his childhood and his time in the Navy, but she'd barely listened. They never really had a conversation. But on his 81st birthday her father placed two weathered notebooks on her lap -- letters he'd written to his parents during World War II. The challenge was for her to find the real truth. Was he an office jockey or a spy?
