Craig was deployed to North Africa, then to Sicily and fi nally to Italy. They soon have another daughter, Susie, born in May, 1947. Claire becomes terminally ill. How Craig handles her illness, eventual death, and their children, is a story repeated all too often even today. If only he would have looked to Providence for his help instead of a bottle, his life and that of his daughters’, would have turned out differently. It is the lack of inner strength drawn from a loving family, or from God, that throws his and his childrens’ lives into turmoil and violence. His youngest daughter, Susie is catapulted into a life of alter personalities unknown to her until she totally collapses. The dark cloud that has followed her all her life, finally consumes her and wreaks total havoc and insanity in her life and that of her family. Her path through depression and quagmire of multiple personalities is long, disruptive, and harrowing.
