"No more time for Germans, she said. As though it was for her to determine this for him. So much was happening. He was forgetting his knapsack, which he was entitled to keep. And he was forgetting the other Polish sergeants-the ones he had agreed to go to town with, to the dance. Already she had him fully confused. And hadn't she mentioned America, even? What was it she said about America?" So begins the adventure of "Jadwiga's Crossing," a compelling story of emigrants from Poland in the period after America's great Civil War. A young girl from a Baltic fishing community, a proud soldier in service to Prussian militarism, and the love that compels him to take the gamble of a lifetime. Theirs is no simple voyage to the New World as they deal with the challenges of a mismanaged squarerigger, discord among their fellow passengers, a scarcity of food, and mounting disasters.Website: JadwigasCrossing.com
