I’m a historical novelist, fascinated by individual journeys in other times and places as men and women seek what poet Mary Oliver calls our “place in the family of things.”
In Under the Same Blue Sky, a young German-American woman discovers that more than magical healing powers are needed as World War I up-ends her community.
When We Were Strangers (2011), a USA Today Bestseller, follows a young seamstress from a mountain village in Southern Italy as she stitches a new life in America’s rough immigrant quarters of the 1880’s.
