Beth, a mid-Westerner, marries a charming, intelligent Englishman in 1960, a time when life in America was simpler. She gradually learns that her husband, Will, is a complicated, secretive person. After fifty-seven years of marriage, she realizes that she didn’t really know him. After his death, she discovers more than she wants to know about the real Will.
Quotes from Beth’s story
“Will liked to talk about himself, and within the next two weeks,
I learned everything about him that he wanted me to know.”
“I sat watching, anticipating Will’s dance with me.
In my memory, I am still waiting there.”
“Will was never too ill to charm the nurses.”
“As the wife of an Englishman, it was my duty to keep a stiff upper lip.”
“God had twice given me life – when I was born and
when I was allowed to return to raise Dora.”
Editor’s General Overview
“I Didn’t Really Know Him” is a fascinating look at what can go on in a family behind closed doors; but ultimately, it is a testament to how a woman maintained her dignity and strength in very trying situations, and that the Lord provided love for her in different ways.”

Fauneil was born and raised in northeastern Nebraska. She has four college degrees: BSc in Education from the University of Nebraska; MEd from the University of Arizona;
BA and MA in music from San Jose State University. She has traveled extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Canada. She has had two careers, as an English teacher and as a professional musician, both described in her writing.
