My Brothers and Me: The World War II Years
Three brothers' ships sink during WWII. Sister, then ten years old, recalls the events supported by letters and old news clippings.
She vividly descibes austere war-time living conditions, including living through WWII and The Great Depresion, which defined The Greatest Generation.
" I did not know very much about WWII. This short story (memoir) is a fascinating read, so interesting, so humane, couldn’t put it down. Narrative is fluent and lively.

Giorgi's Greek Tragedy
Placed in the rugged Taygetos Mountains in the Peloponnese peninsula of Southern Greece, "Giorgi's Greek Tragedy"
tells of The Ottoman Turkish Empire's occupation of Greece from 1790-1829. Agents of the sultan's elite Janissary Corps murder Giorgi's parents.
Seeking revenge, he joins the outlawed Greek freedom fighters. Ensconced in deep caves, the fighters live and train to battle the Turks. Far
below in the valleys, overtaxed and overworked peasants toil in the fields. The story comprises the lives of three generations of a family and of
the cruel treatment inflicted upon them by the Turks. Love of family, love between a man and woman, and Giorgi's love of country are recurring
themes in this poignant tale.
"Pauline Hager writes with stunning visual language that will sweep you away to Japan and Greece in her two books,
the first is a memoir and the second is a novel. Hager's vivid and beautifully written words make you feel like you are right there. Enjoy!"

soul-searching they accept, and their lives are never the same. They soon thrive in their new countryside home, specifically designed for Westerners they
are surrounded by friendly neighbors from The European Union, Canada, Russia and America. Author Pauline Hager gingerly maneuvers through complicated rules

you see that life in Japan is a challenge, but an amazing journey that anyone interested in Japanese culture should embark upon.
"Beautifully written! Memoirs of an American Housewife in Japan" guides the reader through a foreign land with a perspective
that is rich and personal."
