After his mother’s death, Tyler Trafford discovers old letters and photographs that reveal a mother he never knew, a man he's never heard of, and a love affair doomed by class and circumstance. The letters are from Jens Müller, a Norwegian pilot who trained in Canada, one of only three prisoners who would make it home after The Great Escape. Trafford reconstructs his mother's life, from a wealthy Montreal debutante to a broken but unbent casualty of a loveless marriage. Written with heart-wrenching honesty, this memoir confirms that while you can survive your past, you can never escape from it. Winner of the Wilfrid Eggleston and W.O. Mitchell Awards. Tyler Trafford worked as a reporter and now writes fiction and non-fiction. World War II, Personal Memoir, Women Biography, Canadian author
