Kathy Rainey

The Uncommon English Teacher and the Forgotten Doughboy



by Kathy Rainey Bussmann

Introducing the 100-year-old authentic memoirs of an English teacher and an ambulance driver who broke the stereotypes of their era during women's suffrage, World War 1, and the Great Depression. This is a profound tale of dreams, love, marriage, war, work, hope and faith. The author, their granddaughter, Kathy Rainey Bussmann, discovered their letters and diaries upon the passing of her father. After spending 15 years researching her genealogy, she soon learned she would need her family genes to save her own life.
