From New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Ann Packer, a “tour de force family drama” (Elle) that explores the secrets and desires, the remnant wounds and saving graces of one California family, over the course of five decades. Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of his future family, Bill buys the property and proposes to Penny Greenway, a woman whose yearning attitude toward life appeals to him. In less than a decade they have four children. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, overwhelmed and undersatisfied, chafing at the conventions confining her. Years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence sets off a struggle over the family’s future. One by one, they tell their stories, which reveal Packer’s “great compassion for her characters, with their ancient injuries, their blundering desires. The way she tangles their perspectives perfectly, painfully captures the tumult of selves within a family” (MORE Magazine). Reviewers have praised Ann Packer’s “brilliant ear for character” (The New York Times Book Review) and her “naturalist’s vigilance for detail, so that her characters seem observed rather than invented” (The New Yorker). Her talents are on dazzling display in The Children’s Crusade, “an absorbing novel that celebrates family even as it catalogs its damages” (People, Book of the Week). This is a “superb storyteller” (San Francisco Chronicle), Ann Packer’s most deeply affecting book yet, “tragic and utterly engrossing” (O, The Oprah Magazine).

In the German ranks during World War II, there were not only young adults but also teenagers who were seventeen years old, fighting for a sinister cause. This is the story of a Waffen SS recruit in the midst of the dying days of the Reich. The main character, Otto, is a sensitive soldier, afraid of living up to the manly Nazi ideal. In battle, he is one motorcyclist amongst a company of elite policemen ordered to squash Tito's uprising in Slovenia. Imagine the suffering and misunderstanding of a seventeen-year-old boy, fighting a war glorified before and then made confusing as he enters an atmosphere clamored with horrifying experiences. This novel is filled with suspense and heartbreaking moments. It is war in its true color and is different from any war novel for its unique slant on a confused nonpatriotic soldier who is thrown into a hopeless fight against a Communist insurgency.
