Abstract:

Attending a New England summer camp, young Eric Schroder?a first-generation East German immigrant?adopts the last name Kennedy to more easily fit in...This book relates the story of Eric?s urgent escape years later to Lake Champlain, Vermont, with his six-year-old daughter, Meadow, in an attempt to outrun the authorities amid a heated custody battle with his wife, who will soon discover that her husband is not who he says he is. From a correctional facility, Eric surveys the course of his life to understand?and maybe even explain?his behavior: the painful separation from his mother in childhood; a harrowing escape to America with his taciturn father; a romance that withered under a shadow of lies; and his proudest moments and greatest regrets as a flawed but loving father. -- Publisher's website.
