Book Description (back cover)
Bluebird in Belgium
by Dr. John W. Luton
Into every life comes the bittersweet mixture of life and death,
joy and sorrow, hope and despair. But what makes the difference
between a happy life and a miserable existence is not the ratio
between good and bad, but one's determination to cling to the
good in spite of the bad.
Growing up in northeastern North Carolina, John Luton marveled
as his father told stories about his childhood and World War II
adventures. Bluebird in Belgium relates many of those wonderful
in Belgium is a heartwarming tale of childhood innocence,
the love of family, and a search for meaningful existence during
war and peace. It is also a tale of joyful encounters, painful
separations, and the miracle of memory.
Follow the Bluebird on a journey leading from the sweet potato
fields of North Carolina to the desert sands of North Africa and
snowy hills of Belgium. Discover the answer to the question that
will not let him go: In the end, is life worth the struggle?
Dr. Luton teaches world literature and
mass communication at Elizabeth City State University.
The Lutons have three grown children.
