It's Just Been Glorious
The Storied Life Of Marlene Smelser People who knew her kept saying, "You must write a book about Marlene." "Please write a book about Marlene." I wasn't sure. But as soon as I began to write, ordinary things added up to extraordinary. And with some real-life adventure to add in, it turned out to be a pure pleasure to write.
Whatever lessons are here, I have tried to let her actions, life, and words make her point. Young women can see in Marlene's story a joy that is never going to come from a secularism that recognizes little difference in the roles of women and men. Her life may well encourage other women about the glories of femininity and noble character. My hope is that her story might live on as it is given on such occasions as graduations, marriages, and childbirth to those whom the reader loves. - from the back cover, by Dale Smelser
