The setting is rural Maine decades after a little-known chapter of 20th century history - the detention of nearly 400,000 German prisoners of war in the U. S. During World War II. Wolfgang Kallick has arrived in America to learn the details surrounding the death of his brother who had escaped from one of the camps and was found dead months later. Libby Pelletier, who grew up during the war, helps Wolfgang, only to find that her own family is implicated; [i-x,1] 2-323 pages.
