The German Boy

Author:

Patricia Wastvedt

Synopsis:

It is 1947. A sixteen-year-old German orphan, Stefan Landau, has come to live with his aunt's family in England. Elisabeth does not know what to make of her sister's son - this dirty, traumatized boy in his shabby Hitler Youth uniform. For among Stefan's meagre possessions is a portrait of a girl with long copper hair by a painter called Michael Ross. A portrait that brings back memories, both painful and precious, of Elisabeth's life in the years before the war... Spanning decades and generations, THE GERMAN BOY is the moving story of two families entangled by love and friendship, divided by prejudice and war, and of a brief encounter between a man and a woman that touched each of their lives forever.

Roland Watson-Grant

Synopsis:

Nine-year-old 'Skid' Beaumont's family is stuck in the mud. Following his father's decision to relocate and build a new home, based on a drunken vision that New Orleans would rapidly expand eastwards into the wetlands as a result of the 1970s oil boom, Skid and his brothers grow up in a swampy area of Louisiana. But the constructions stop short, the dream fizzles out, and the Beaumonts find themselves sinking in a soggy corner of 1980s America. As things on the home front get more complicated, Skid learns of his mother's alleged magic powers and vaguely remembers some eerie stories surrounding his older brother Frico... Atmospheric, uplifting and deeply moving, SKETCHER is a novel about the beauty of life no matter how broken it is.
