Over the Rhine

BOOK SUMMARY/SYNOPSIS:Newlyweds from Germany immigrate to Cincinnati, Ohio in the late 19th century. They seek the freedom to raise a family and improve their lives on their own terms. Three children are born in Ohio. They thrive and have children of their own who build on the opportunities offered in the new country.Events and experiences change old beliefs and customs for all. As the family grows, their successes and failures are part of history. This story ends at the start of World War II, the second war where German immigrants find they must prove their loyalty to America. It is a journey all immigrants face even today. It is the blending of many whose values hold firm and where differences of race, religion, culture and aspirations result in a nation truly representative of the world itself.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Jean Romano has the mixed heritage of many Americans.
