A young woman recalls the day a Nazi general and his personal entourage arrived at her family's farm in 1940 and much later finds the courage to share the story with her fiancé. In other stories of remembrance, one courageous Frenchman protects and rescues those he can, friends who remain loyal throughout generations to follow. A major in the United States Army welcomes a family back to their partially destroyed Paris home, and a teenage boy helps rebuild and restore his grandparents' Normandy home, uncovering bones, military insignia, and live ammunition.
In stories of intertwined families, meet those who have endured and those who have not. Strengths shine and triumph; weaknesses are revealed. Agonize with those who cannot bend—their wars are carried out within the prison walls of their hearts and souls. Where there has been war, the past will live on as long as there is someone to remember.
These tales—some tender, others poignant, some uplifting examples of the human spirit, and others heartbreaking accounts of loss—are woven into a compelling family saga.
