Author Shares Novel about Love and Family Ties through Thick and Thin

Author and Educator Shares Story of Struggles and Dreams Fulfilled from Germany through America

Hampton CT – WEBWIRE

From Germany to America – a family braves the uncertain life over the Rhine.

“Over the Rhine: A Novel,” by Jean Romano, relays to the readers the hardships and struggles through life of a family living in a new land. The story starts off in the beautiful 19th-century Düsseldorf, Germany. The lives of the main characters, of Emilia and Wilhelm, begin in this idyllic setting.

The book takes the readers on journey along with the characters of the novel. Their search for a better life as a family brings them beyond Germany, and over to the United States when they emigrated to Cincinnati, Ohio. In an unfamiliar land and with new roles to play, Emilia does her best to focus on the personal and educational needs of their three children: Elise, William, and Herman. The children eventually mature and develop dreams of their own; thus, they too must overcome their own obstacles and attempt to achieve success during uncertain times in America.

The story of the Knobholtz family reflects the struggles of migrant families in their new home country: the adjustment, the acceptance and acknowledgment of the people around them, and their establishment and achievements as a family. The novel is surprisingly relevant even today as migrants struggle with the policies and environment of foreign soils.

“Over the Rhine: A Novel” is indeed a relevant story that strikes a nerve when it comes to the immigration situation in the world today. The 2017 Frankfurt Intl Book Fair last October 11, 2017, thankfully gave readers the chance to take home this interesting and inspiring book and many other good reads.
