OLYMPUS NIGHTS ON THE SQUARE, Book 2 of the JULIANA SERIES by Vanda Writer – LGBT Coming of Age, Post WWII New York City
One woman carves out her own destiny and expresses her own truth in this coming-of-age story set in post-World War II, New York City. Vanda utilizes facts and the legal record to reveal that we, as a society, have every ability to be inhumane, but we must never allow ourselves to crush the lights around us, because to do so leaves us all in a bitter darkness.
