Mind of Fog Reviews
, "this was a wonderful book that had me wondering what was similar between my great-grandmother and me. I definitely will recommend the book to family and friends that love fiction."
Though she doesn't understand exactly why, Maria isn't content with her lot. The prospect of exchanging dependence on her family for dependence on a husband doesn't sit well with this young woman growing up in late 19th Century Germany. Three generations later, on the other side of the Atlantic, Eva struggles with a similar restlessness; she's generally happy but never quite satisfied.
This book follows Maria and her great-granddaughter Eva as they face surprisingly similar choices in dramatically different decades: how to keep a roof over your head, when to abandon independence and commit to a lover, where to draw a line in the sand. The choices they make take them to new countries, open them up to heartache and leave them wondering what is enough.
