THE IMPOSTER BRIDE
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction
Told from several points of view and contrapuntal time frames, The Imposter Bride is a moving contemplation on the lingering, sometimes insurmountable, aftershocks of monumental loss. Yet, in a novel catalyzed by one of history’s greatest evils, there are no villains, only everyday heroes. In the course of time’s healing flow, each character’s fear, sorrow, disappointment and bitterness fall away to reveal an unforgettable, radiant core of loving human decency.
Knowing she’d been abandoned as an infant by her Holocaust-refugee mother never much bothered 6-year-old Ruth Kramer — it was just a fact of her otherwise pleasant childhood in a close-knit, affectionate Jewish family. Then the small stones and cryptic notes begin to arrive, and Ruth wonders through the years if her mother is truly the sad, damaged and mysterious figure her family has portrayed or a lethally cold-blooded opportunist.
