JONESBORO, Ark., Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many stories can be told about World War II. In Richard L. Hartness, Sr.’s latest book, “Someday … You’ll Know!” he dives deep into finding the answers to questions he has been searching for about his father who did not return to them after the war. His book is a testament to his genealogy and an oath to inspire others to find their family’s truth.
Throughout the book, readers will get a glimpse into Hartness, Sr.’s dedicated quest to put the pieces together from his family’s past. When he was younger, he often asked his mother what happened to his father. Little did he know, his mother had decided the answer would be revealed at her death. When Hartness, Sr. finally found the truth of his parents’ short-lived romance, he knew that he was not the only one on this journey of parental discovery.
“When I was little, I always asked my mom who my biological father was,” said Hartness, Sr. “One day, I kept pressing her, and her answer was ‘Someday you’ll know!’ which is where the title of my book came from. I wanted to share my lifetime quest to discover the identity of my father. I hope my story will encourage others on similar odysseys to persevere on their journey and to never give up.”
