The Plum Tree

Ellen Marie Wiseman

A young German woman faces the horrors of World War II in Wiseman's poignant debut. In the fall of 1938, Christine Bolz is working for the Jewish Bauerman family, hoping to one day escape her small village. Everything changes once she falls in love with the Bauerman's son, Isaac. The two long to be together, but the differences in their stations and religions keep them apart. Then Isaac is arrested and sent to Dachau. Christine follows him to the camp, hoping for a chance to engineer his escape. Will they ever be together? An unforgettable novel of courage and resolve, and of hope and love.
