A strong believer in the power of heritage and the care of a family during times of crisis, Violetta Armour holds family close to her heart, a concept she hopes to share in her new book “I’ll Always Be With You.”
“I’ve found that our ancestors’ wisdom can guide us through difficult times by sharing their experiences and values,” Armour said. “There is nothing greater than a family’s love to help us come out of a crisis stronger.”
Drawing from her own experience as a first-generation American with Bulgarian roots, Armour tells the story of Teddy, a young boy who has lost his father and finds comfort in a book his great-grandfather carried with him to America. Through this life-changing book, Teddy embraces his origins and finds the peace of mind he’s been looking for.
“I’ll always be with you” offers insight into the trials of facing racial tensions and prejudices while encouraging the celebration of culture and traditions.
“Our heritage is important in determining who we are. As a first-generation American, I grew up feeling inferior because my family was ‘ethnic,’” Armour said. “Now I’m thankful my parents kept our European culture and traditions alive while becoming the best Americans they could be.”
