    Awesome historical novel!

    This is a totally captivating story that is everything a historical novel should be. From the first moment when the reader meets Jotto Wells as a child in Florida in the 1950s through her maturing into a dynamic senator in Washington DC , the reader is transported to previous times and places. The novel's premise, that Hitler sent his cohorts on a mission to infiltrate governments throughout the world using their children, is delivered believably and engagingly. Through Jotto's search for her origins and the mystery that surrounds them we are convinced of the insidious effect of the Nazi drive to dominate the world. Clouds Across the Sun is a love story wrapped in mystery and suspense. It's fun to read and satisfying, too.

    I had the honor of reading Ellen's other book, So It Was Written

    I had the honor of reading Ellen's other book, So It Was Written, and I fell in love with both her writing style and her ability to tell powerful stories with a lot of truth to them. This is a woman that does her research to make sure that her books are accurate. But it isn't just her attention to detail, but the amount of details and description she puts into the stories.

    Clouds Across the Sun is just as awesome as So It Was Written. I fell in love with Jo. But it wasn't only her character, each character as they were introduced gave me an invested interest, even the ones that I disliked. Ellen knows how to use a character arc effectively. As the characters change and grow, the reader gets to see that change and development.

    I really loved the underlying connections in this one too. It was such an amazing book. Ellen is a wonderful writer and I hope she releases some new books soon!

    I recommend this book for those that like pieces that take a look at the past and put a new spin on what history has shown us.

    Wonderful story

    This is a novel that will grab your heart from the very first paragraph.
    A story of good versus evil - a very powerful demented evil.
    The main character, an amazing woman named Jo, discovers her life is a lie and the past a dark secret.
    Her journey from Naples, FL to Washington to Israel is full of twists and turns, love and betrayal.
    A descriptive historical novel that makes you believe you are part of the story.
    You will not want to put this book down.

    Hitler in Naples, Florida

    What if? What if it could happen, did happen? Did Hitler really command his progeny to filter through and rise to the tops of governments? Could it really happen in America? That is the question that keeps the pages turning in Ellen Brazer's novel, Clouds Across the Sun. We see the generational impact of the Nazis on family life. From the opening pages in cozy 1950s Naples, Florida, where a father hypnotizes his ten year-old daughter, the reader sees Jotto Wells grow up to be a powerful senator in Washington. We see a father and uncle devote their lives to creating an identify for Jotto, an identity that will be shattered, leaving her with the timely question: who am I? But the little girl who always yearned for a mother's love will find her roots in the most unlikely of places: Israel and Vilnius, Poland. Brazer allows the reader to know a little more about Jotto than the main character herself, so we are committed to her self-discovery. Brazer's vivid descriptions of Naples, Washington, Israel, and Poland take us there: we feel the sunshine of South Florida, we marvel at the riches and power of Washington, we are transported in time in Israel, and we smell the forest in Poland. Clouds Across the Sun is full of suspense, history, family ties, and love. The only time a reader will ever put down this book is to continously ask: what if?

    loved it from the start. Couldn't put it down.

    Found the story very credible, almost scary. Although it is fiction, I suspect there are some historical facts here. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning about the Holocost.

    Interesting book

    This is an easy, fast read. It is highly predictable but while reading it, compelling reading and scary.

    Never to be Forgotten

    Once I began reading, "Clouds Across the Sun," I couldn't put it down. Ellen Brazer's storytelling ability keeps the reader on his or her toes. I was immediately drawn into the saga, waiting to see what would happen next. The characters are very real, as is the story they tell. The impact of the Holocaust on millions of families, both Jewish and non-Jewish, should never be forgotten. Ellen makes certain that one ever will.

    Believe Again!

    Clouds Across the Sun is a breathtaking book that brings hope to life. The premise captivated me from the get-go. The idea that Hitler could have reached beyond the grave to reign terror again, made my skin crawl. What is worse is that the story reads so well that it makes one wonder whether there is any truth to Hitler's plot. Personally, I get bored easy. If a book doesn't grab me and keep me from beginning to end, I put it down. Clouds Across the Sun gripped my heart. The characters leapt off the pages until they became friends and foes. Buying Clouds Across the Sun is a no-brainer! Ellen Brazer is an author who makes one transcend the ordinary and question the deeper meaning of life itself. Do we each have the inherent power to triumph over evil? After reading Clouds Across the Sun, I am convinced that we can and will!

    Wonderful new book

    If you want to be completely captivated, then buy and read Clouds Across The Sun. You will not be able to put down this book from the first page on. I loved every minute of reading every chapter in the book. There is something in this book that reaches out to everyone.

    The characters evoke so much emotion that you become one with them. The story touched me in so many ways and is written in a captivating, beautiful manner. I cannot wait to read Ellen Brazer's next book which will be out in 2010.
