Readers Comments:

Hi Claire, I just thought Walter’s Story was excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it – it’s got just the right amount of suspense without falling into the trap of being formulaic. I don’t think it’s really a children’s book – as an adult I found it totally engaging and it gave me great insight into what it would have been like living in E Germany.

I am still impressed about Walter’s story. You did profound researches and investigations about the situation in East Germany after the war…

What a wonderful book you wrote. You have huge talent & must be proud of being “published”.

Finished reading. Walter found the man he called grandpa was really his papa. You are very imaginative and original. I don’t think Volker could have told you enough to compose such thrilling story.

“It is very kind of you to send me a copy of your book. I am finding it fascinating.
In the year before the Benin camp,I had spent 6 weeks in East Germany through the AFSC at a work-camp in Gera. It was a strange place, and somewhat sinister. I spent a night under arrest because I had wandered into a restricted area – till the Free German Youth (FDJ) (our hosts) arranged my release.
Keep on writing!!”
