    Gisela Engelhardt Riedinger
Engelhardt will make you see the Berlin of her youth, shudder at the inhumanity of war, laugh at the foibles of a young immigrant, smile at the joy she encounters, cry at the tragedies and come to know an exemplary woman and her family. This courageous woman tells of the heart-wrenching decision to leave Mother, Father and younger brother to travel to the United States at age 25 with one dollar, a few English words and the promise of a job as maid in at a dude ranch. Later, she marries only to have her husband die two days before the birth of her second child. In the final section, this now thoroughly American woman traces the ancestry of a strong family back to its roots.   show more
