About the Book

River's Edge

One extraordinary woman will come of age --- and come into her own --- in this haunting portrait of an ever-changing America during the tumult and uncertainty of World War II.

In a Germany teetering on the brink of World War II, Elise Braun, motherless child of a career military officer, is an unwilling refugee. When her father realizes his country has fallen into the hands of a tyrant he must defy at any cost, Elise is sent to live in a Connecticut farming village with a minister's family. An accomplished pianist whose only solace in this strange land is her music, Elise cannot know how she will come to care for her adopted family, how many will turn against her once war is declared and how she will be tested when the men she loves most fight for opposing armies.
