Summer of My German Soldier

ebook

In Bette Greene's award–winning debut novel, a young Jewish girl in the postwar South finds herself drawn to a German prisoner of war   When the Army delivers a batch of Nazi prisoners of war to an internment camp in Jenkinsville, Arkansas, Patty Bergen is as anxious as any of her neighbors to get a glimpse of the monsters. The eldest child in the town's sole Jewish family, Patty is lonely and isolated, spending most of her time in the company of Ruth, her parents' black housekeeper.   Then she meets Anton Reiker, an inmate in the camp. Even though he fought against the Allies, Anton seems to understand Patty in a way even her parents never have. When Anton escapes from the camp, Patty risks everything to keep him safe—but following her heart may come at a terrible price.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bette Greene including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
