Chronicles of a Catholic Housewife: Forty Years Toward the Promised Land - meet the author
In her memoir, Chronicles of a Catholic Housewife: Forty Years Toward the Promised Land, Carmen Hartono writes of her quest for love and understanding within our world community. She grew up bi-lingual and bi-cultural traveling between her birthplace of El Salvador and the free-spirited 60’s in San Francisco. Her husband is multi-lingual and multi-cultural. His Javanese father met his Dutch mother while studying in Holland. The story evolves in Oakland, California, but Carmen sees herself as a world citizen.
