Chicago author releases sequel to war and military novel nationwide
CHICAGO — This week marks the nationwide release of author Sanela Ramic Jurich’s new thriller novel, “Haunting from the Past,” the sequel to her previously released war and military novel, “Remember Me.”
In “Haunting from the Past,” readers are reintroduced to Selma, a respected business woman, living in Chicago with the love of her life and their son, and tries to move on and recover from the horrible experience she had gone through while living in Bosnia in 1992—where she and her parents had found themselves targets of the Bosnian war and where Selma had lost nearly all those she loved, was abused by those whom she once trusted, and had witnessed prejudice at its ugliest. However, the hell from which she thought she had finally escaped found her in America and started haunting her again, reminding her that there was unfinished business someplace else.
From the outside, it looks as if she finally has it all; career and family many people could only wish for. She thinks she is the luckiest person on the planet who had survived and escaped hell. One day she receives a phone call that forces her to go back to the place she had left behind almost two decades before. She had promised never to go back there, but now, she finds herself in a desperate situation from which there is no way out. She goes back to face her demons once again. Will this trip finally, push Selma over the edge and be the end of her? Who knows, it might even help her get some kind of conclusion. Readers will follow Selma’s journey back to the past through despair, hatred, love, hope and peace in author Jurich’s “Haunting from the Past.”
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Chicago author portrays Bosnian Genocide in new novel
CHICAGO– In her new novel, “Remember Me,” Chicago author Sanela Ramic Jurich portrays the brutality of the Bosnian Genocide, but reveals how God’s hand restores the main character’s life tenfold. The book tells the story of fifteen-year-old Selma, who is just beginning to experience the power of her first love. Unfortunately, living in Bosnia in 1992, she and her parents soon find themselves targets of the Bosnian War, and her father is arrested by the Serb Army and held for questioning. In an attempt to protect her daughter, Selma’s mother sends her to stay with her aunt. Days after arriving, the city is attacked, her family members murdered before her eyes, and Selma is thrown into a concentration camp where she lives out her worst nightmare. After losing nearly all those she loves, being abused by people she once trusted, and witnessing prejudice at its ugliest, she isn’t sure she even wants to stay alive. The book offers readers a glimpse of the courage it takes to face one’s attackers and whether love can blossom from beneath the rubble of war. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. Jurich moved to America from Bosnia in 1993 with the help of her aunts Nefira and Hida. She now lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband, Todd, and two sons, Denny and Devin. “Remember Me” is her first novel. For more information, visit sanelajurich.tateauthor.com.
