Candy Bomers, Hidden Bunkers, and Smugglers...
Book 1: Cousins Erich and Katarina find that survival in post-World War II Berlin isn't easy, especially when the Russians impose a 24/7 blockade around the city. But everything changes when they sneak inside an American cargo plane and meet a U.S. airman named Fred DeWitt. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end they must decide: cling to bitterness, or learn to forgive? Book 2: In book two of this series, we fast-forward to 1961, when Cold War tensions peak and the Berlin Wall traps Sabine and her friend Willi on the wrong side of the city. Though handicapped by childhood polio, Sabine (Erich's younger half-sister) learns to trade weakness for trust when she discovers a forgotten underground bunker. In the end it could take them under the wall to freedom, or into more danger than ever. Book 3: In the final book of this trilogy, Willi and Sabine's daughter, Liesl, is looking for a cause. It's early 1989, life is good, and the Cold War seems to be thawing ... slowly. But as Liesl works on a class project about her family, she uncovers a startling secret about her American grandfather, thanks to a boy from Wyoming. And no one expects what would ultimately happen to the wall that has separated her family for years.

On another planet, the new faith of its first Believers is tested in the shadow of evil In book two, readers can contemplate how biblical truths translate in another world. The planet of Corista has been thrown off its axis, and the bright side has been plunged into perpetual darkness. Are the Owling people of Shadowside to blame? With both sides of the planet in chaos, the world becomes even more confusing for 15-year-old Oriannon when her former music mentor Jesmet miraculously returns from the dead and promises his followers a special power called the Wind. But his is not the only offer of hope. Sola, Corista's charismatic head of Security, proposes the 'ultimate solution' for peace, and she recruits Oriannon to help her carry out a seemingly perfect plan. But Oriannon's closest friends are skeptical and try to convince her that the plan involves evil acts against the Owling. Should Oriannon trust the feelings of her friends? Will she embrace Sola's solution as the answer to the world's dilemma? Or will she believe the promise of an Owling holy man before she can no longer discern between light and darkness?

Yet as their relationship deepens, Gerrit faces crises concerning his family and farm, while Joan confronts a dark secret that threatens her future. While coping with these challenges, neither can predict how their duet will sound as they practice the music of renewed hope and second chances.
