One Woman's Life and a Special Holiday Surprise

Irena Praitis, author of One Woman's Life, surprised her grandmother with a copy of her latest book this past December.  This might not seem like such a big deal.  Most grandmothers love to support their grandchildren, right?  What was different about this surprise is the picture on the cover and the words inside.  One Woman's Life is the remarkable story of Ona Kartanas (Irena's grandmother) and the cover image shows Ona's smiling face.  The picture below, taken by A. Praitis, the author's father, shows Ona discovering her own life story in book form.  What a special holiday surprise!  Thank you to Irena for sharing this moment with all of us!
