Belva Plain pulls together the many life-threads entwined with Paul Werner’s to form a magnificent tapestry for listening enjoyment.

Beginning in 1920, paralleling Hitler’s rise to power, and encompassing World War II, Bleva Plain’s new novel weaves the threads of history into a brilliant tapestry. As vivid events plunge the world into a dizzying vortex of change, an unforgettable American Family must summon up extraordinary courage to face birth, death, murder, illicit passion, and a great tragedy… and one passionate man must fight his own war against evil — a war that can be won only with honor, integrity, and love.
