Reviewing The Hangman

The Hangman (The Forgotten Files #3)The Hangman by Mary Burton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mary Burton never disappoints. She’s getting better all the time. The Hangman is a compelling page-turner with dark and complex danger plus a touch of romance. Although I thought I could solve the mystery of identifying the hangman, it still kept me guessing until the surprise ending. Don’t miss this one!

Daughter of Holocaust and Atomic Bomb Survivors Speaking throughout Florida

Meant to beRoslyn Franken, inspirational speaker and author of Meant to Be: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit, delivers her multi-media program with the powerful true story of her Jewish parents surviving and finding love against all odds. She is now touring Florida and scheduling throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Upcoming events are

  • March 21 at 7pm ,  West St. Petersburg Community Library at Petersburg College,             6700 Eighth Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL
  • April 20 at 7:30 pm at the University of Tampa Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values, 601 Frederic H. Spaulding Dr., Tampa, FL

All events are free and open to the public to attend. Book signings will follow each  presentation. Her books are available on Amazon, and a limited number of autographed books are available at the Florida Holocaust Museum gift shop in St. Petersburg, FL.

Personal testimonies from Holocaust and other World War II survivors help to ensure this turning point in human history is not forgotten. By listening to survivors tell their stories, the audience can relate the real-life experiences of these individuals to the history.

The problem is that there are fewer and fewer survivors left to give their testimonies. Also, those still alive often do not want to talk about their past, and others are sometimes unable to tell their story due to physical and/or other health limitations.

Roslyn Franken is carrying the torch for future generations by sharing her parents’ inspiring story of survival, love and triumph through her important work as a professional speaker and author of Meant to Be. Check for her book in libraries and in holocaust museums.

For more information or to schedule Roslyn to speak, contact info@speakersinternational.com or call her agent Liz Mitchell (843)902-4799.
