A master plan for rescue / Janis Cooke Newman

Publication | Library Call Number: PS3614.E626 M38 2015
Book cover

"Set in 1942 New York and Berlin, "A Master Plan for Rescue "is an enchanting novel about the life-giving powers of storytelling, and the heroism that can be inspired by love. In essence, it is two love stories. It is the story of a child who worships his parents, then loses his father to an accident and his mother to her resulting grief. And it is the story of a young man who stumbles into the romance of his life, then watches her decline, forever changing the arc of his future. Each is propelled by the belief that if he acts heroically enough, it will restore some part of what -- or whom -- he has lost."--Provided by publisher.
1942 New York. Jack worships his parents, then loses his father to an accident and his mother to her resulting grief. Jacob stumbles into the romance of his life, then watches her decline, forever changing the arc of his future. Each is propelled by the belief that if he acts heroically enough, it will restore some part of what he has lost. When they meet, their combined grief and magical thinking will allow them to dream the impossible. Sharing stories of the people they have lost, they are inspired to join forces and do something so memorable that it might actually bring their loved ones back-- even if only in spirit.
