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.
