From her own experiences in the Danish Resistance, Elsebeth Schoenberger has brought forth a jewel: a coming-of-age novel set in the darkest days of the Nazi Occupation. This is a story of war and sorrow, of character and courage, all told through the eyes of an innocent young woman coming face to face with evil on an almost unimaginable scale.
long with her novel's success, Elsebeth has been sharing her personal story with students in many corners of California Wine Country, helping them understand history and one of its most important lessons: Never forget.
A charming debut novel by Sasha Paulsen
With wit and charm, Sasha Paulsen has produced a gem, about love and romance, about hope and disappointment, and about what life was like in the social and cultural turmoil of San Francisco in the 1960s and 70s. And Sasha opens with this telling quote:
"…the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common-place thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars…"
-- Jack Kerouac, On the Road
Sasha's book will be out later this year.
