Fathers teach their children by the example of their own lives. Or do they?

Fathers' Children is the compelling narrative of Jacob Kormansky and Kurt Bohmer, long-time friends and loyal partners, who raise two very different children. One father's son fights valiantly for justice and human dignity while the other young man embraces Fascism with astonishing fervor. Set against the backdrop of the madness and brutality of Europe in the 1930s and 1940s, Fathers' Children explores age-old questions about the complex relationships between fathers and their children. It examines the particular challenge that fathers of the time faced to counteract the murderous Nazi influence which swept the continent and which was embodied in Adolf Hitler, the quintessential surrogate father to millions of impressionable youths. More importantly, Fathers' Children is an affirmation that the love and encouragement we receive from our fathers sustain us in even the darkest times.

About the Author

Renée Karp received her Doctor of Philosophy in English Literature from McGill University in 1982, and has been teaching at the college level for over thirty-five years. Fathers' Children, her first novel, is the result of the inspiration of her parents, her interest in history, and her belief that young people must understand the past in order to forge a better future. Renée is an animal lover, an avid walker, an educator who seeks to empower her students, and, most of all, a proud mother of two wonderful children.
