Description : This book was written only through the grace of God. Every word has His essence running through it. God has given me an incredible gift, to be able to share and express who I am through my writing. Every poem I have ever created was during times of emotional despair and misuse through other people. My only outlet was pouring out my heart in poems. If I didn’t have this gift, this wonder for words I believe that I’d be in a much different place and despair would have over taken me. God in His infinite wisdom is very wise and has given me a way to release negative feelings. This book has been a long awaited dream of mine coming to fruition and I pray that it encourages every reader to follow their heart to see their dreams manifested as well.

Description : This very inspirational book is more than a simple memoir--it is his ethical will. The author relates how events and circumstances in his life have influenced him to be the man he is. It truly is a dialogue with his soul as he contemplates just what are the values that have been the guiding principles of his life – and what happenings throughout his life were shaped by and did also shape his moral compass. Reading his ethical will imparts encouragement to everyone to consider the value of embarking on this endeavor. A question we all at sometime ask ourselves is – what is really important and what kind of legacy do I want to leave? Passing on his sincere thoughts, values and beliefs abrogates the interpretation of them by others. His ethical will reflects “the voice of his heart.” Born in rural Nebraska on a farm without indoor plumbing at the end of the Depression, served in the US Navy, and after a long and highly successful career in business and followed then with a diagnosis of cancer, he decided to stop and have literally a dialogue with his soul. And through that searching for his real self, which he so beautifully relates, gained a clearer perspective on his life as he lived it in the past and continues in the present. He had a delightful entrepreneurial bent beyond his big corporation life with some successes – and yes, some non-success stories. He loved to be busy with remodeling projects in every house they lived in as he and his wife moved around the country frequently on his rapid moving up the corporate ladder. And what fun stories some of these are. He always has had an overriding “can-do” drive and coupled with a love for treating others well and honestly. We all can see ourselves many, many times throughout this wonderful book. And reading his Dialogue With My Soul hopefully will help the reader to also have such a dialogue create their ethical will, and gain the blessings it has meant to him and his loved ones.

Description : "I remember my mother Jocelyn." She accompanied "me to the induction center." She could follow me no further... "I can never forget the expression on her face, the sadness, the tears, for she had suffered through the entire ware for all her sons..." With this indelible impression, Jeremie, the youngest Lobel son, introduces his family as it faces the turmoil of the late 1930s and then endures World War II and battle's toll. Jocelyn, Catholic, a renowned singer, has married a Jewish physician, Aaron, a man of medical achievements. They struggle throughout their marriage not only because of conflicting careers, religion, and social status but with the fear of four sons in service during World War II. Moreover, Jocelyn's brother, Joseph, has become an agent for the British prior to hostilities and works and spies in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. He also marries a German double agent Elena, working for the allies. She comes to the United States to live. Mistakenly believing her husband died in battle, she returns to occupied France. Jocelyn, meanwhile, seeks a semblance of stability while trying to reconcile differences with Aaron and also with her difficult daughter-in-law. These accumulating home problems occur as her sons' letters arrive describing their trials on the battlefields while withholding their knowledge of a murder by Joseph. Eventually, Jocelyn's strength preserves the family and herself through tragedy and eventual worldwide peace. About the Author Richard Shain Cohen of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, is originally from Boston.
