The Blackberry BusheBook - 2011
The Berlin Wall divided a city and a nation for nearly thirty years. When it is torn down on November 9, 1989, it's possibly the single most significant event of the 20th century. Still a potent freedom metaphor, it echoes through halls of power and in the hearts of individuals from every country and social status. And that same night on opposite sides of the globe, two babies are born, one a boy, the other a girl ... Josh grows up an artistic and gifted California Golden Boy, but for all that life has handed to him, he struggles with his identity and his role in the world. Kati's German heritage presents its own obstacles to undersanding herself and what freedom means. She is crushed by disappointment at never being "enough"--Especially for a mother who cannot be satisfied. These two seem destined to meet, to explore their freedom birthright together. Are chance encounters truly chance?
