1946, post-World War II, Hamburg. While thousands
wander the rubble, lost and homeless, Colonel Lewis Morgan, charged with
overseeing the rebuilding of this devastated city and the denazification of its
defeated people, is stationed in a grand house on the River Elbe. He is
awaiting the arrival of his wife, Rachael—still grieving for their eldest
son—and their only surviving son, Edmund. But rather than force the owners of
the house, a German widower and his rebellious daughter, out onto the streets,
Lewis insists that the two families live together.
In this charged atmosphere, both parents and

way to passion and betrayal, to their deepest desires, their fiercest
loyalties, and the transforming power of forgiveness. Download and start listening now!
