A masterful love story set against a backdrop of epic history and unforgettable courage

In the waning months of World War II, a small group of people begin the longest journey of their lives.

At the center is eighteen-year-old Anna, the daughter of Prussian aristocrats, and her first love, a twenty-year-old Scottish prisoner of war named Callum. With his boyish good looks and his dedication to her family, he has captured Anna’s heart. But he is the enemy, and their love must remain a closely guarded secret. Only Manfred, a twenty-six-year-old Wehrmacht corporal, knows the truth. And Manfred, who is not what he seems to be, is reluctantly taken with Anna, just as she finds herself drawn uncomfortably to him.

As these unlikely allies work their way west, their flight will test both Anna’s and Callum’s love, as well as their friendship with Manfred–and will forever bind the young trio together.

Rosalie's thoughts on "Skeletons at the Feast: A Novel"
updated on:5/17/2009

A truly remarkable story about WW II. This is really 3 stories in one. The Prussian farmer and his family trying to escape from the Russians and the Nazis, the POW from Scotland, the girls from the forced labor camp and the Jewish refugee trying to escape with his life while trying to findhis sister. I highly recommend this book.
