The bond of a father and daughter is special. When Jules father asks her to come be stay with him because he's terminally ill, she goes for the remarkable opportunity to really know her father. She never dreamed he had liberated a concentration camp, dealt cards to Bugsy Siegel or saved the life of a Black Panther. Wings of Hope takes you on a road trip through the memories of a man making peace with his life through his conversations with his daughter. Teaching her that death is sometimes the most heartbreakingly beautiful part of life. Hope is the last gift of a father to his daughter--the power to reach for her dreams.

My father's extraordinary life.

"This book is incredibly beautiful. The author deals honestly and thoughtfully about the sadness and emotion that comes from saying goodbye to a terminally ill loved one, and shows how the experience can also bring life into focus and can inspire people to live more meaningfully. The book is beautifully and tenderly written and once I started it, I found it difficult to stop reading. The author's use of details are touching and interesting and I was completely immersed. Highly recommend!"

"I loved this book. My dad died just a few years ago--what I would give to have had that time like Jules to get to know him
REALLY. Boy, it's a little sad, but it's a lot sweeter and it gave me hope that I should really try to do what I feel I really want to do. I have a talent and I need to go for it. It was really neat."
