Overview

The issues raised in this historical novel are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago.

In the first century A.D., significant events in Germania had a profound effect on the evolution of European history. The novel East of the Rhine follows a man of uncertain parentage born into the Cherusci tribe.

The intriguing story follows his life from youth to old age, as he is both an actor and a victim in these turbulent times. The man struggles with the physical and psychological consequences of the events using the social and religious tools available to him.

Questions of justice and life’s meaning arise that demand answers. The desert journey to successful resolution of these issues is finally revealed to him.
