Believable dialogue and story. I did find some emotional dialogue overlap, which puts me off. Glad to say there was much to enjoy in thus story.
Was interesting, but not quite up to par with the previous books of Mr Dempsey has written. I enjoyed it and have started the second book of the series.
Entertaining… and makes me want to learn more about 1930s Germany! Ordered book 2 because I also am curious how the story will develop.
From America in the great depression to the rise of a fascist state in Germany a down and out father does we he can to keep his family together. Leaving America behind he travels to Germany to take over a family business hoping it is just the ticket for a better life… or is it. A story of a family bonded together in trying times. I really enjoyed this book. The history of America and Germany in the 30s has been written about numerous times but Mr. Dempsey has created a story that pulls you and makes you want more. Thankfully book two is now out. Well done.
