Melanie Mason, author of The Line That Divides will be signing her book on Wednesday, December 10 from 5-7 pm.
About the book: With boundaries clearly drawn by the horror of World War II, Austrian teenager Marianne Leichtner doesn’t think about love. Returning from Germany, where she was forced to attend school as a linguist, she settles back into life in the countryside.
The crash of an American B-17 bomber in the hills behind her family’s home changes everything. Shortly following the accident, Marianne discovers Charlie and Sam, the only surviving crewmen from the plan, hiding in the barn. She decides to help them and is thrust into a world of danger and secrets. An unlikely friendship forms, and then the Nazis arrive. After a week of hiding the young men, Marianne is attacked by Lieutenant Herske, a Nazi officer, and is rescued by Charlie. She helps the Americans escape, but assumed the worst when she learns two Americans were killed trying to cross the border.
As she pieces together her broken heart, Marianne decides the only way she can defy the Nazis is to join the Austrian resistance. To cross that line means discovering who she really is and what she is willing to do. Because of Charlie, she is willing to take the chance.
When the war ends it seems impossible to return to normal life. But a miracle occurs, saving Marianne one more time.
