This gripping historical novel takes us to Europe during the last century -- a world far different from ours, yet with
striking similarities. It is the story of three college friends and their families, well educated, well to do, and loyal
to the monarchy. Delighted, they see conservative Hindenburg win the elections. But within months, the reigns of
government tighten -- Hindenburg's new chancellor, Adolph Hitler, asserts more power daily. Blinded by his grand
promises in their hour of need, the people applaud him; yet he leads them into tyranny and doom. Why did people fall
under his spell? The author gives compelling answers by reaching behind the mystique that shrouded Hitler's persona --
the man who called himself The Savior sent by God. In the background Europe wavers at a crossroad: Vienna, a city of
splendor and abject poverty, Hitler a choirboy at the monastery where he noticed the swastika, his years in the gutter,
his stormy love affair with a niece half his age whose murder raised questions. In the foreground whirl the loves and
lives of civilians suddenly caught in a chokehold, coping with adversity, fearful of informers, and struggling to
maintain their integrity. They excel in endurance, and become masters of ingenuity to make do with next to nothing. When
Europe lies in ashes, the golden, merciful hand of the Marshall Plan helps Europe back to its feet. It is an inspiring
chronicle of the resilience and the triumph of the human spirit.
