Summary
When Daniel Knight was thirteen, he and ten-year-old Brigitte Berthold escaped the Gestapo agents who arrested both their parents. They survived a harrowing journey from Germany to England, only to be separated upon their arrival. For more than seventy years he has vowed to find Brigitte. Now a wealthy old man, his final hope in finding Brigitte rests with Quenby Vaughn, an American journalist working in London. Quenby is wary at the idea of teaming up with Daniel's lawyer, Lucas Hough, but the lure of Brigitte's story is too much to resist. They follow a trail of deception, sacrifice, and healing that could change all of their futures
Summary
In 1940, 13-year-old Dietmar Roth arrives home to Nazi soldiers harassing his parents. Doing as his mother quietly instructs, he flees, taking his 10-year-old neighbor Brigitte with him; they make it out of Germany but are separated in England. Now 90, Dietmar thinks tenacious investigative journalist Quenby Vaughn might be the one who can finally find Brigitte. Quenby clashes with wealthy Dietmar's young lawyer, but agrees to help. With a compelling dual timeline narrative, Catching the Wind is an inspiring, well-researched novel that readers won't soon forget. -- Description by Dawn Towery
