The Border of Truth: A Novel by Victoria Redel

During the 1940s A Seventeen-Year-old European Jewish refugee aboard a ship being returned to Nazi-occupied Brussels, after having been denied American port, writes a series of letters to Eleanor Roosevelt. He beseeches her intervention and tells his own story (the girls hes kissed, the movies hes seen). The minutiae of this young boys life mix with the mortal realities of the time in his communiques. Decades later, in contemporary Manhattan, Sara is uncovering the secrets of her parents--secrets in which, through silence, shes been complicit. The Border of Truth is a multi-faceted exploration of the experience of first-generation children of refugees (in this case of the Holocaust), and the ways in which the stories of their parents define their lives. Ultimately, these two very separate timelines converge as Sara can no longer keep her self-made promise not to ask her father what happened to him and his family during the war. When he thwarts her questions, the pieces of his puzzle find their way to her on their own. Fascinating, mesmerizing, and gorgeously told, The Border of Truth is a riveting read--sure to bring Victoria Redel to the wide and appreciative audience she so handsomely earns in these pages.
