Maitland, author of Crossing the Borders of Time: A True Story of War, Exile, and Love Reclaimed (Other Press $18.95, due 1/8/13) is an award-winning former "New York Times" reporter, presents a sweeping account of her family's escape from war-torn Europe that hinges on the intimate and deep romance of Maitland's mother, Janine with a Catholic Frenchman. Janine's escape from Germany to France during Hitler's rise to power, her family's eleventh-hour escape on a refugee ship and their acclimation to America are woven with another story--the sorrow at leaving her fiance behind, and the life-long hope of seeing him again.
