Stones From the River
From the acclaimed author of Floating in My Mother's Palm and Children and Fire , a stunning story about ordinary people living in extraordinary times--"epic, daring, magnificent, the product of a defining and mesmerizing vision" ( Los Angeles Times ).
Trudi Montag is a Zwerg --a dwarf--short, undesirable, different, the voice of anyone who has ever tried to fit in. Eventually she learns that being different is a secret that all humans share--from her mother who flees into madness, to her friend Georg whose parents pretend he's a girl, to the Jews Trudi harbors in her cellar.
Ursula Hegi brings us a timeless and unforgettable story in Trudi and a small town, weaving together a profound tapestry of emotional power, humanity, and truth.
