Elisabeth left Germany "under cover of darkness" to escape an intolerable situation, leaving her five children, and an abusive husband, behind. After arrival in America, she spent years trying to reunite the family. This is a love story, a tale of family interwoven with the history of America from 1864 until 1895. This tale will appeal to genealogists, who will recognize the use of family history research tools; historians, who will appreciate the inclusion of landmark events in the regions discussed (New York, New Jersey, and Chicago, primarily); and romanticists who will enjoy the courtship of Elisabeth and her inner turmoils as she recognizes her love for her suitor.
