Meet Eddie and Liese Konrad. Theirs is a story of love, separation, faith, and survival that spans decades. Their story begins in 1910, when Liese was born in the Khortitza area of Ukraine and doesn't end until her death in 1981 in Berrien Springs, Michigan.
Follow their journey from their early courtship and marriage, beginning a family, and having to say goodbye due to the vagaries of World War II, to the decades-long separation and the trials of Liese being a single immigrant mother and Eddie becoming a prisoner of war and his subsequent life of hardship under a Communist regime.
World War II destroyed many lives, and ripped apart many families. The Konrad family is no different. They must work together to escape to safety in the midst of a world falling apart. Liese must fight for the very survival of her children. All the while she hopes and waits for her husband to return. She never gives up on her faith or her God, and she never stops waiting for Eddie.
