Before the end of WWII, Hitler charged a group of his most trusted and brilliant comrades with a mission-educate your progeny and then elevate them to positions of power throughout the world. Steeped in fact, and meticulously researched, Clouds Across the Sun is the story of just one of these children. From Naples, Florida, New York City, and Washington D.C. to Israel and then the killing grounds of Vilnius, Poland (Lithuania) this story is one of great romance, discovery, redemption, and enlightenment as Jotto Wells unravels the intrigue surrounding a plan to take over the government of the United States.
Clouds Across the Sun is just as awesome as So It Was Written. I fell in love with Jo. But it wasn't only her character, each character as they were introduced gave me an invested interest, even the ones that I disliked. Ellen knows how to use a character arc effectively. As the characters change and grow, the reader gets to see that change and development.
I really loved the underlying connections in this one too. It was such an amazing book. Ellen is a wonderful writer and I hope she releases some new books soon!
I recommend this book for those that like pieces that take a look at the past and put a new spin on what history has shown us.
Ellen Brazer lives on South Beach. Her newest book, And So It Was Written was released September 2012. And So It Was Written premiered as a bestseller under Jewish Literature on Amazon.
