Abstract:

On a pier in Marseille in 1942, an eighteen-year-old German Jewish girl--pried from the arms of the Catholic Frenchman she yearned to marry--was compelled to board the last ship to escape the country before the Nazis choked off its ports. As the Lipari carried Janine and her family to Casablanca on the first leg of a perilous journey to Cuba, she would read through her tears Roland's parting words: "I give you my vow that whatever the time we must wait, you will be my wife. Never forget, never doubt." Five years later--her fierce desire to reunite with Roland obstructed by war and then by her family--Janine started anew with a dynamic American husband. Yet she never ceased dreaming of her lost love, and her daughter, journalist Leslie Maitland, eventually set out to find him. The result is a tale of memory that reporting made real and a story of undying love that crosses the borders of time.
