Same Moon, Same Stars
By Elaine Thomas
A few months after Germany's surrender in World War II, a chance meeting changed the trajectory of the lives of 18-year-old Renate Macherauch of Bad Berks, Germany, and 21-year-old U. S. Army Sergeant Harvey Meiners of Waldek, Texas.
This delightful book is a history lesson and a love story. It is the remarkable life journey of Renate Macherauch Meiners, a story that "echoes with the courage of conviction, strength of character, love of family and deep faith." - Carolyn Heinsohn, Fayette county, Texas, historian and author
