“I plan to sing and dance my way through life, become internationally famous and live happily ever after,” Miriam Wolfe wrote in her high school yearbook. But her dreams ended brutally on December 21, 1988. Returning home from a Syracuse University semester in London, she died in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Join Rosemary on her jagged journey from the grief of losing her only child to renewed courage inspired by Miriam’s legacy of love, humor, idealism—and a zillion friendships! Miriam’s World—and Mine brings us up to the present, revealing the harrowing legal crises of Pan Am 103: trials and outrage, justice undone. But wrapped around these nightmares, you’ll find comfort and joy in the array of families’ memorials: scholarships, sculptures, a baseball field, and the Syracuse University Remembrance Quilt. Curl up with Miriam’s wisdom and wit in her entertaining stories, poems, diaries and essays. “Reading about Miriam has had a very big effect on my life—I really carry her wisdom with me every day now. I had gotten away from seeing the joy of each day and she has restored my spirit. What a fabulous legacy.” —Kate White, Editor-in-Chief, McCall's, 1993 www.magicile.com. email@example.com.
