Chronologically speaking, this is the first book in the Erika Frohmann series, although it was published third or fourth (depending if you consider "Stranger on Lesbos" part of the series). This book is set right after Erika is liberated from the concentration camp after the war, and details how she comes to America and what happens to her after she arrives.

I like the character of Erika (at least in the other books I've read that have her in it), and it's interesting to see her early years. But

Meh. Kind of have to love finding original editions of this and the other two books in the series in a queer bookstore in DC. Kind of have to love the ridiculous premise: a concentration camp survivor who "journeys to fulfillment" in a Chicago suburb after being adopted by an American family. Pretty weak showing overall though. Originally published in 1964.

A little too disturbing for my tastes. A holocaust survivor repeatedly violated by those whom she loves/dependent on.
