Uncovering Lives

Discovering One Immigrant Generation’s Secrets and Lives of Forgiveness, Grace, and Healing

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


An unidentified photograph, a stack of old letters, and a memory of a shipwreck seem to be promising starts for a new mother putting together a family tree for her young son. But the search quickly leads from nostalgic memories of immigrant parents and grandparents to long-buried secrets, like alcoholism, infidelity and abuse. As the search moves through the Midwest to Sweden and Denmark, stories emerge of families who rise above poverty and pain to understand, forgive and heal, and to live lives of grace and dignity.

Nancy Goede is a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) in the Chicago area. She served as Lutheran campus pastor to the University of Chicago community for seven years, and Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Oak Lawn for eleven years.

Uncovering Lives

Nancy Goede's family memoir, "Uncovering Lives," is a graceful, grace-filled work. Lovingly and skillfully crafted, it's both a fascinating story in its own right and an excellent example of how to tell a personal history. From its opening words the reader is welcomed into a fascinating story at once familiar and unique. The author's insights, informed by her own faith, are resonant but never preachy, true to her narrative and the quiet beliefs of those who inhabit her stories.
