This book is my Memoir: Not long ago I returned from a summer of research in Germany. After I took the shuttle from the airport in Oklahoma City to Norman and settled back into my house, I realized we needed an item that required a trip to a department store. Standing in line at the cash register I spoke to the cashier, when the woman behind me said: "You're not from around here, are you?" "No," I answered. It was a question I had heard many times. In fact I had just heard it in German when boarding my plane at the Frankfurt Airport. -
The author writes of her experiences as a refugee from Eastern Germany, an immigrant to Canada and later to the United States, and her family's struggles with life after World War II. This story of loss and suffering is told with humor and sometimes sadness. Ultimately, the family adjusts and even flourishes. They found a new home in the United States. ¬
