About this title


From bestselling author Janice Woods Windle comes a compelling historical novel based on the life of her own grandfather. The protagonist is Will Bergfeld, a brash young man of German descent who is accused of treason and stands trial for his life in 1917, in the midst of the anti-German sentiment that ran rampant in small-town Texas during World War I.

From Publishers Weekly:

Based on events in the author's family history, this ably written historical novel follows a century-old court case. The author's German heritage caused her ancestors grief at the time of WWI in the Texas hill country town of Seguin, where America's rabid anti-German hysteria revealed itself in deep suspicion and persecution of German Americans like Will Bergfeld. The dapper and capable William Hawley Atwell, who later becomes a federal judge, defends Will against an accusation of treason; in fact, Will is guilty of nothing but union sympathies, German ancestry and a mercurial temperament that makes him a difficult client and often his own worst enemy. The trial is an uphill battle against the press and public sentiment, and the case is stacked against him, but Will has right on his side, and is supported by his beautiful, gentle wife, Virginia King Bergfeld, and his volatile, gorgeous sister, Louise. Windle already has a deserved reputation as a fine, lyrical writer and lively historian: she used the rich fodder of her tough Texas female forebears to produce the well-received True Women. Here, she condenses thousands of pages of transcripts from her grandfather's actual trial into a suspenseful fiction, and vividly resurrects 1917 Texas. This excellent book will be popular with history buffs and romance readers alike. (Oct. 25)Forecast: A 10-city author tour and $100,000 marketing campaign should effectively advertise this strong effort, and mobilize Windle's fans who include First Lady Laura Bush.
