See Ya

Retired Colonel Matthew Rankin’s sudden death at a party in 1996 leaves a gap in many lives. Deepest, perhaps, in that of his daughter, Manda, whose grief is overwhelming as she realizes how little she knows of who her father was. His strict and formal way kept Matthew at odds with his daughter.

The coincidental arrival of Pieter Becker, a man following a just-found trace of his own father’s World War II disappearance, sets the two of them in motion to solve the puzzle of their fathers’ connection. At first, the only clue they have is a photo taken of the two men together in Grand Central Station in 1975 by Willi Prang, a garrulous former WWII POW who says he knew Pieter’s father.

And the looking begins, returning to Manda’s childhood in the 1970’s; and then fifty-odd years to 1944, a lifetime ago.

See Ya is an evocative, generation-spanning tale that touches and enlightens as it seeks to inspire hope.
