Deborah Chamberlain

Author Deborah Chamberlainabout this book: The hardest part of writing the book was re-living the circumstances and emotions about the time period. My book is a memoir - a love story that blossomed during an emotionally troubling time - my family had problems, the Vietnam War was a dark cloud, turmoil in Chicago during the Democratic convention, armed marksmen on the roof of my high school to keep us safe. And yet, it was the best time of my life: a wonderful boyfriend who made me feel loved, wanted and cherished. And the best part was, my best friend fell in love with my boyfriend's best friend. We were able to spend time together. And then I lost him ... and my friend lost her boyfriend. Such sad times for two young girls - we were only 17 years old.

So, yes, it was difficult, but I fulfilled my desire to put a finished copy of the book in my boyfriend, Michael, mom's hands before she died. And I did - and she and I still recall those special moments with Michael.
