Under the Same Blue Sky
A NoveleBook - 2015
"1914, Smoky Pittsburgh Eighteen-year-old Hazel Renner has a talent for drawing and dreams of traveling the world, a life free of the grand expectations her loving, ambitious immigrant parents want for her. When war breaks out in Europe, her fantasies are shattered, and horrific carnage and wrenching loyalties agonize her fellow German-Americans; now they're the enemy, hated and attacked. Hazel escapes to teach in Galway, a tranquil town seemingly tucked away from the world. The idyll is cracked when she and her freshly painted blue house seem to acquire mysterious healing powers. Hazel denies it all, but soon even she can't ignore the "miracles" happening around her. The town's outrage when "the wrong people" are healed leads to tragedy, and Hazel flees Galway and the terrible consequences of abilities she can't control. Her world is shaken further by the discovery of a family secret that takes her on a journey to unearth her past and find possibilities of extraordinary in a world transformed by war"-- Provided by publisher.
