Catherine Madison will be at the Grand Rapids Area Library on Thursday, November 3 at 6:00 p.m. for a Q&A and signing for her book The War Came Home with Him: A Daughter's Memoir


Madison_War coverIn this striking dual narrative, Catherine Madison tells the stories of two survivors of one man’s war: a father who withstood a prison camp’s unspeakable inhumanity and a daughter who withstood the residual cruelty that came home with him. Piecing together her father’s experiences as a POW in Korea, Madison uncovers long-hidden truths about his past, gaining insight into her own in the process.


"A mesmerizing page-turner. Catherine Madison has written a captivating, beautifully crafted tale of the horrors her father endured as a prisoner of war and her lifelong quest to unravel the mystery of his tortured soul." —Hugh Delehanty, coauthor of Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success

"I loved this book, not only for the knowledge gained concerning a war I knew so little about but for Catherine Madison’s skill in relating both sides of this complex and difficult story. She is truly a reliable narrator, and her interweaving of her father’s ordeal as a prisoner of war with her own growing up in a household with a broken and damaged man is honest and generous and truly moving." —Judith Guest, author of Ordinary People
