JAMESTOWN, N.D., Nov. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beginning a journey into the unknown where she must face many challenges she never expected, a young woman continues to show her perseverance, strength and determination in Beverly Westman’s new novel, “Helen in America” (published by Archway Publishing). The book is a sequel to the author’s earlier book, “Helen.”


Married to a local man at a young age, Helen begins a journey into the unknown where she must face many challenges she never expected. Moving from the “old country” to America, she embarks on a journey into the future where she meets many people who influence her life in diverse ways. As she comes to know illness, devastation, hardships, and separation from her family, Helen ultimately loses her courage and will to go on. But it is not until she finds unexpected love and then sadly loses that love that Helen becomes determined to persevere. No matter what life gives her, Helen must find a way to move into a new future through the strength found in a love that, although it can never be, will always be.


“I learned first-hand from my grandmother, and all family members the importance of family, friends, love, determination and honor of country,” Westman says. “My grandmother’s life inspired me to write this book, some of her life lessons and her determination to live the best life offered, along with some of the stories she told. However this book is totally fiction.
