Echoes of Silence juxtaposes the innocence of childhood against the backdrop of bigotry and prejudice prevalent during World War II. The choices, made years earlier by the adult characters of this story, create echoes that reverberate forward into the lives of their children, which change and shape all of them in unexpected ways. This story follows three families during the final months of WWII. This profound and sweeping tale of human strengths and failings offers the reader a unique view of ordinary people whose lives are forever changed by the far-reaching effects of war. Especially touching is the plight of Japanese-Americans held captive by their own nation throughout those turbulent war years. Another thread of equal importance explores one of the main characters-Konrad Bauer-who immigrated from Germany ten years earlier. He is a man of high ethical standards, but the arrival of a young man from Germany causes him to challenge and courageously face the demons from his past.

Nadene has written numerous short stories and studied many novels to learn how they were constructed.
