Reviews

"Gretel's Cross is an unusually intimate and empathetic example of historical fiction, focusing on the period of 1914-1945. The author's style enables the reader to become part of Gretel's typical German family, following ageold traditions in an historic walled town. Family members experience personal challenges as tragedy, destruction, and the chaos of war engulf them. It reflects the unexpected courage and triumph of everyday people in extraordinary circumstances." -Sims Kline, Research Librarian, Stetson University "Gretel's Cross awakens memories of open fields, romantic forests, rustic walled towns, and delicious traditional food served in cozy surroundings. This colorful memoir spans two World Wars that changed forever the provincial way of life Gretel's family had known for generations in the beautiful region of Franconia. With the challenges that beset most families and the waves of historic changes, Gretel and her family reveal to us all how honor and bravery can emerge among the most ordinary people in extraordinary times." -Kathleen MacDonald, retired Associate Professor "Reading Gretel's Cross reminded me a lot of the stories that my German grandma used to tell me. Everyday life, as well as historical events that one usually only knows from the history books, are brought to the reader in an endearing way because of the personal and poignant appeal of the story. One has the front-row seat on the roller-coaster ride of joy and sorrow in Gretel's life." -Ariane Preusch, native of Germany"
