Product Description

In post-World War II Germany, tensions mount. Berlin, the former capital city, is now in Soviet-controlled territory, but it is still governed in part by the western allies, creating an isolated enclave in a hostile land. Robert Elmer's three-book generational series for kids unfolds against the backdrop of Cold War Berlin. These gripping adventures tell the story three young teens, connected by family, faith, and friendship, as they struggle to hold on to life and each other, while their lives brutally separated by the Berlin Wall.

Willi and Sabine's daughter, Liesl, is just trying to understand history in this exciting conclusion of The Wall Trilogy. The Cold War seems to be thawing--albeit slowly--in the Berlin of 1989, although it's not easy to visit Uncle Erich on the East German side of the city. As she works on a school project about the wall, she stumbles onto a startling secret about her American grandfather, thanks to a boy from Wyoming. But Liesl soon finds that there are physical walls and then there are emotional walls, and she despairs of ever knowing the whole story--until events of enormous historical importance change her family's history forever. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

Publisher's Description

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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Robert Elmer
Submitted: December 21, 2006

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Let's say a typical young reader of this book is eleven or twelve. That means they weren't even born when President Reagan gave his famous "Tear Down This Wall!" speech at the Berlin Wall. That realization motivated me in part to write this story, as it puts recent history into perspective against the backdrop of the past half century. But don't get me wrong: This is an action-adventure novel first, and kids will love the characters without realizing they're picking up history along the way. That's what makes writing this kind of book so fun.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I wrote this series for kids who love fast-paced adventure -- like I do. But there's so much more to it than that. Loyalty, faith, tragedy, courage... When you read these stories you'll discover real people wrestling with real-life faith issues. After all, they're based on real events! So in the bargain you'll learn some history, too, and find how God is faithful through the years, from generation to generation.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I guess you can call these "Christian spy stories for kids," and I grew up on a lot of these kinds of adventures. So it was only natural that I'd eventually write about Berlin -- and life behind the Berlin Wall.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Hang on! These adventures will take you for a ride, and you'll see what it was like to live in a divided city, behind the hated wall that divided all of Germany during the Cold War years. With boy and girl characters from several generations, there's plenty of adventure for everyone.
