A Description of the Book
Hugh Aaron delicately reveals the world through the innocent eyes of a young boy, through those of a soldier far from home during wartime, and those of a struggling businessman and faltering husband. He is unafraid to reveal panic beneath a façade of success, the deep and hollow sadness that may exist in an outwardly happy marriage, the yearning we feel to make a break for freedom from the rat race, the unexpected emotional responses that shift lives far beyond the expected course of events.

A MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR

It's a fact that living, being alive and experiencing life, is, by itself, an amazing experience. Regardless of our age, if we look back on our lives we are bound to find something or someone marvelous, unforgettable: a person, an event, even a dream. And when we look back from the vantage point of an elderly person, we have only the long past to ponder because there's so little time left in the future. In our old age we think about our life's experiences, especially the crucial ones that molded us into the persons we've become, and marvel at them. That experience, those events, those people, are the sources of the stories you will find in Stories from a Lifetime. All of us are important, not only to ourselves, but to the people around us, and we carry them within us to the very end. All of us have such stories to tell, different from your author's, of course, but no less moving, no less inspirational. So as you read each tale, think of your own stories, beginning with your childhood to where you are now.
