THE PLUM TREE by Ellen Marie Wiseman, (c) 2013. This story takes place during WWII in a German village. Since I am largely of German decent I enjoy reading books like this. Christine Bolz is a seventeen year old domestic servant working for a wealthy Jewish family. She falls in love with the son Isaac Bauerman. Isaac and Christine dream of sharing a life together but their life in the village in the year 1938 is running their chances of a happy life. Christine is forbidden to work for the Bauerman’s, as the whole country has become anti-Jewish. AS I can see hard times ahead for both families, I’m sure I’ll enjoy this book, since it will reflect the reality of the times.
