            LOST ROOTS

In Lost Roots I reveal how a single family was affected by rampant ethnic nationalism of the time - how each member used it and was used by it in Germany, Poland, and the U.S. - and how the secrets were kept. Lost Roots: Family, Identity, and Abandoned Ancestry is available in ebook and paperback formats.

"A gripping story...features excellent prose, captivating commentaries, and a conflict that transports readers to the Post-WWI era."

                                                                                                        - The Book Commentary


"A well-researched and sentimental memoir [that] details the way oppressive structures have altered the identity of millions of families. Lost Roots has equal parts nostalgic storytelling and detailed research, providing beguiling context for what’s happening in Poland, Germany, and America. I was completely enthralled until the very last word."

                                                                                                       - Independent Book Review

"A scrupulous, intelligently history. Limns...the fate of war-torn Europe with admirable vigor."

                                                                                                        - Kirkus Reviews
