Sophie Heller and her family emigrated from Germany to the small town of Victory, Illinois, well before WWII began. But now that the war has deeply affected the town, local residents are beginning to turn a cold shoulder toward them. Then tragedy strikes when a train is derailed, and the Heller family is unfairly blamed. With paranoia and discrimination threatening to destroy the once peaceful town, the handsome teacher from the high school gallantly comes to Sophie’s defense. Against great odds and despite their cultural differences, a romance begins to blossom—but can their newfound love survive amid the escalating turmoil?

    " I like the stories I have read from this author. This story takes place at the time the US enters WWII. It's interesting to see the reaction and interactions of the characters. It's not a war story per se but a tale of how a nationality and a physical imperfection are treated by certain people. "
