Press Release updated: Sep 4, 2020 06:00 EDT

Dagmar (Van Der Meer) Howe, a writer for Building Bridges of the United Church of God, an accomplished artist, has completed her new book “Whatever Happened to Dagmar?”: an emotionally driven autobiography of an immigrant who rose from the depths of domestic abuse and attains repose through faith and compassion.

Dagmar writes, “This is the journey of a young European immigrant who was living the American dream—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—until she found herself a prisoner of the social injustice of domestic abuse with a partner who had succumbed to the illness of alcoholism. Wanting to become an artist and a writer, the struggle to regain the freedom of her childhood for herself and her children could have been anyone’s story because these social issues exist in America today and threaten the liberty of our families and of our goals.

“This is the story of love, loyalty, friendship, fears, toil, and tears—a story of setbacks, discouragements, and challenges common to mankind. Without faith in the God of the Bible who brought the Israelites out of bondage, Dagmar may have remained captive in an unacceptable situation that was stealing away the God-given liberty of freedom of choice.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Dagmar (Van Der Meer) Howe’s engrossing tale is a testament to a woman’s unwavering resilience and belief that led her to achieve liberty and purpose in life

Readers will find themselves immersed in a real-life story that emanates with virtue and wisdom.

Readers who wish to experience this touching work can purchase “Whatever Happened to Dagmar?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
