Felicia Brown

Felicia Prekeris Brown  – author of God, Give Us Wings

Felicia always knew she would someday tell this tale of love and appreciation to her parents for their sacrifices.  After retiring from her job as chief probate court investigator in San Jose, California, she finally felt ready to relive the fear-filled years of her childhood – when her heart longed for a doll, but her circumstances required that she worry about survival.

Good Give us WingsFrom the destruction of their home in their native Lithuania, they traveled by foot and by horse cart across the war-ravaged lands of Prussia, Poland and into Germany.  Even the end of the war did not bring relief when they were in a displaced person’s camp.  Felicia’s memoir of love and sacrifice is an inspiring story that is a very readable, realistic portrayal of civilians’ fight for survival in wartime.

Copies of her book can only be purchased at If you bring a previously purchased book, the author would be happy to sign it for you.
