ALL LOVE COMES HOME, by GENE FISCH, is a historical novel about a family’s journey of the


When I look back into our history, I wonder how we survived at all.  I am grateful to be the
beneficiary of my mother’s and father’s life values and thankful that I had a chance to live
them out. Gratitude can make the seemingly impossible possible.  I hope readers will come
away with the message of the book—that it is not the anguish, but rather the joy of human
triumph that gives meaning to our lives. This book honors those Polish mothers and fathers
who, like my own, left behind the terror and devastation of the Second World War and
brought their children to America, where we have been tremendously grateful for the safe
haven this country provides, a safe haven where we can remember in peace our Slavic,
Catholic heritage.

This volume will take you into the terrifying pre-war years in eastern Poland and the
devastating years of the Soviet wartime occupation experienced by my family. I recreate in
the novel, as best I can, my mother’s sense of unconditional love and my father’s steadfast
reliance on his faith within the context of a largely overlooked part of World War II history, a
history that belongs now to those souls who, as a result of the years of senseless
aggression and slaughter, now lie in silent graves in central and eastern Europe. An
estimated 22 million Catholics and Orthodox Christians lost their lives from 1939 to 1946.

If my parents, Bronislawa and Andrew Fisch, could render a service to the world today, I
feel certain it would be to stimulate in others the love of life they always felt, but also to
help those others understand the full truth of Poland’s World War II ordeal and cherish the
memory of the Slavic patriots who suffered in the fields of war and died with the footprint of
suffering on their souls.

"A powerful cri de coeur, the author successfully endeavors to reconstruct the
exterminated world of his childhood through the recollections of his mother. Touching and
shocking, it is a hauntingly sentimental journey into the depth of memory set to a fast paced
and thrilling narrative where fact, fiction, and post-modernist devices conspire congruently
to make one whole again."

As an American ethnic with a proud family heritage, I appreciate Marianna’s call not to
forget one’s heritage as to where we’ve come, and what we’ve become. I see Marianna’s
sum virtues of life, and I am inspirationally and emotionally uplifted.

The value of ALL LOVE COMES HOME is in the end a storyline of life that aims to conserve,
most notably, life's higher ideals, extols the virtues of love over hatred in the struggle for a
free mind and soul. We must never overlook that more than one billion Slavic Christians
have not succumbed to 20th century’s greatest evil. The author’s ability in articulating the
virtue-of-truth serves a great moral purpose. This family's journey values the truthfulness
of having a strong faith, of having a relentless pursuit of  higher ideals, and not
compromising life's  principles that last a lifetime. The pages of the book describe in vivid
detail the daily life and what happened to the mothers, fathers, and their grandmothers
under a state's soulless religion.

“As a Professor of Leadership, this storyline is a testament to the powerful qualities of life
that integrity, passion, family, and internal beliefs can exert on the formation of one’s
character, one’s career, and the remembrance of the existence to the whole mind, body,
and soul.Gene Fisch’s story has great merit for a reading audience that can identify with the
ethnicity anchored by social and political issues of yesterday with today’s political
sensitivities, connivance, and mistruths.

A generation can benefit, be uplifted because Author Gene Fisch honestly speaks to the
truth of the times.
