“Have you lost your mind?” Mama shouted. “An American soldier!”
Grandpa stepped in. “Paula assures me that he is a polite young man. She’s always shown good judgment.”
“That makes this even more shocking.” Mama turned toward Paula. “Why can’t you find a nice German boy to date?”
This true story follows Paula and Jack Thomas from post-war Germany to the United States where they filled their lives with work, travel, and a longing for a baby who would never come. Paula knew Jack loved his German war bride, but his care for her could not take away her ache—or her bitterness. But there was Someone who could.
