In The Mood For Peace: The Story Of The Izzy Doll
About the Book
Genre: Historical, Non-fiction
In The Mood For Peace: The Story of the Izzy Doll is a book about how families of our fallen soldiers handled their loss and how their creativity was the seed for legacy projects that are changing the world for the better.
It is also a story about relationships and healing and how self-described ‘ordinary’ people did extraordinary things. This book also delves into post-traumatic stress and the efforts of many to ban landmines worldwide.
Senator Elizabeth Hubley, who is not only familiar with the Izzy Doll but who was also instrumental in the Landmine Ban movement read the manuscript and sent this quote for the back cover of the book. Thank-you Senator.
“Phyllis Wheaton’s thoughtful and touching words not only tell the incredible story of the Izzy Doll, but like the dolls themselves, cannot help but inspire a sense of compassion and hope; a fitting tribute to the Isfeld family and all those who have dedicated their lives to the eradication of landmines.”
The Honourable Elizabeth Hubley, Senator
