HEIMAT

HEIMAT

Matthias Schmidt left his Heimat, Neisse, Germany, in April 1929 to follow thousands of other Europeans for a better future in the United States. Reluctantly he left his mother, a girlfriend, sisters, many relatives, and friends. But he also left an intolerable situation behind. He planned to return as an American citizen, a shining example of American success, marry his girlfriend and bring her to America. En route to Bremerhaven and his ship to America, his plans began to change when he impulsively saved an American diplomat from the tracks in Berlin’s Lehrter Bahnhof.

The heroic act bonded Matthias and three other travelers in a friendship that sustained them through broken promises, misconceptions of the American dream, the Great Depression, Prohibition, and World War Two. Josef Turner, a watchmaker, left Neisse on a whim. Edo Rabinowitz, a tailor, escaped nationally sanctioned anti-Semitism. A teenage farm boy, Feliks Bartol, was sent to America by his family because their farm could not support him. Before the outbreak of World War Two, Matthias questioned his commitment to his plan as letters from his mother, girlfriend, sisters, and others urged him to return as the Nazi regime improved Germany’s economy and national pride. Instead, the war severed contact with his family, sending him and his friends on separate paths: to a shipyard building vessels to carry destruction to their Heimat, the US Army fighting in the Pacific, Germany’s Wehrmacht invading France and Russia, and the Nuremberg trials to bring Nazi war criminals to justice. $8.85 on Kindle.

One Must Tell The Bees

One Must Tell The Bees
When those harrowing words ring out during a children’s entertainment in Washington on the evening of April 14, 1865, a quick-thinking young chemist from England named Johnnie Holmes grabs the 12-year-old son of the dying President, races the boy to safety, and soon finds himself enlisted in the most infamous manhunt in history.

One Must Tell the Bees is the untold story of Sherlock Holmes’s journey from the streets of London to the White House of Abraham Lincoln and, in company with a freed slave named after the dead President, their breathtaking pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. It is the very first case of the man who would become known to the world as Sherlock Holmes, and as readers will discover, it will haunt him until his very last.

At a time when Western history is being reexamined and retold, old heroes cast aside and statues torn down, and even the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, “the Great Emancipator,” is questioned, One Must Tell the Bees is a timely reminder that our history deserves to be understood before it is entirely undone. $8.99 on Kindle.
