“Three Things I loved about this book: 1. I fell in love with Arno and Hattie. 2. The sayings and songs of WW I: I found myself singing ‘Over Here, Over There’ and I want to join a knitting brigade! 3. The promise of more books by Patti Stockdale. I want more!”
– Debbie Macomber, New York Times #1 Best-Selling Author
Patti loves hope, history, and a good happily ever after. She can’t remember numbers, so she married a statistician. Thanks to him, she’s lived all sorts of places and worked all sorts of jobs. While employed by an NFL team, she once answered the phone by the wrong team name. She doesn’t work there anymore. For 11 years, she directed the programming at a nonprofit senior center and hosted an annual talent show, rocking a Dolly Parton wig, Annie Oakley boots, and a sweet–although snug–Batman costume. She no longer works there either. These days, Patti writes books and occasionally educational assessments and magazine articles.
