The Lilac Tree is a story of the first blush of love in an impossible time -- filled with unforgettable characters, and an indomitable spirit of hope and joy.
the year is 1945 and Berlin is in shamble. Alone for the first time, beguiling young Hanne Goldshmidt must find her own way. Homeless and hungry, she is plucked from a crowd of ragged survivors and by sheer good fortune is given a golden chance to start a new life. Falling in love with her dashing benefactor puts Hannah right in the thick of his risky clandestine schemes.
A Russian princess fallen on hard times, a back country G.I. from West Virginia, a cagey Russian spy, an aging German actress and a spirited Ursuline nun all have their parts to play in the drama of Hanne's life. In the end, it all comes down to Hanne: Will she follow the path of comfort or courage?
Life in the Present Tense collects the best of Rifka Rosenwein’s column, “The Home Front,” about her suburban, soccer-mom life, which appeared at the back of The Jewish Week for seven years.
Her brave approach to her cancer, and her decision to share her experiences in her column, resulted in readers taking Rifka into their hearts.
Her reflections — on topics ranging from her son’s first kindergarten girlfriend to living on “cancer time” — are a death-defying celebration of life.
Reading her work you can see your own friends, your parents, your children, your co-workers, your spouse . . . and yourself.
