The Ivory Elephant


"I wore my mother's mask but saw through my father's eyes" Jean opens the door to her Welsh home and her life in a mining community during the 1930's. Forced into womanhood during the tumultuous years of World War Two, she says goodby to her favorite brother with talisman– a small carved ivory elephant on a gold chain. Howard is captured by one of Rommel's divisions and begins the dark days of a German concentration camp. An American Air Force pilot recuses Jean from the rubble of her life. In Homer, Alaska, humor sprinkles their lives when a bear eats windowsill pies and a moose challenges Jean for her basket of laundry. In this memorable novel, unforgettable characters illuminate the timeless emotions of friendship, love, loss and belonging. In her struggles with the past and facing the future, Jean finds strength in unexpected places.
