Paperback: $15.49
Ships in 3-5 business days
Tree of the Volga is the fourth of my novels spinning the stories of the struggles of different German families and their many descendants, as they emigrated ever farther and farther away from the... More > old homeland. This story begins in the Pfalz of southwest Germany. A simple shoemaker, Johann Dietrich Kaiser, wonders if another war will again ravage the area. War passes them by, but not death. That visit would change his life, and the lives of many others, forever. As you move through the pages of the next 162 years, you will meet many more additional characters spinning out their lives. I sincerely hope you enjoy it as a fictional story; but remember, this is fiction and fantasy, and not a research manual, and you should not assume any of it true. Some of it is, much of it is not! Hopefully, reading it may spark some questions about your own ancestors. Even better, it might make you think about God, from who these amazing people got their strength to overcome all obstacles.
