The Survival of Two Cities: West Berlin in 1948 and New Orleans in 2005 Remembered by St Paul Episcopal Church Book Club During Their Summer Reading of ‘Eagles Over Berlin – Flight for Love and Freedom’


New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008

The historical novel about the Berlin Airlift is dedicated to the basic human values of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity expressed by the French Revolution and remembered on July 14, 2008 on Bastille Day in New Orleans in the Book Club of St Paul Episcopal Church. In the city, founded by French immigrants and worldwide renowned by its French Quarter, the discussion about the events of the Berlin Airlift on this very day receives a special aura.

The two cities are also linked through destruction and survival. Who could better understand the struggle for survival of West Berliners in 1948 and 1949 than citizens of New Orleans living the terrifying experience of Hurricane Katrina in 2005?

In war-torn Germany, John, American pilot, and Esther, holocaust survivor, meet and fall in love in the turmoil of history. From the Oval Office in Washington, to Stalin’s study in Moscow, from elegant Paris to blockaded Berlin, we follow the events of the blockade. Through Soviet harassment in the air corridors, plane crashes in Soviet territory and their ultimate sacrifice, we experience the heroism of the pilots.

Despite cold, hunger and darkness, the people of Berlin hold out against hostilities. Soviet spies and secret negotiations lead to the lifting of the blockade, but the victory tragically separates John and Esther. By a twist of destiny, they will meet again forty years later, in 1989. When the Berlin Wall comes down, they will understand the purpose of their lives.

“I was in New York on September 11, 2001 and lived in first line the dramatic events of the terrorist attack. I experienced how life took over the destruction. Life is always taking over; life is divine. This experience was the motivation to write the book. I feel honored by the attention of St Paul’s Book Club. Thank you!”

The book is available through INGRAM and LSI, and worldwide distributed by Amazon. If you purchase your books through http://www.ecampus.com/stpaulsepiscopal St. Paul’s will receive 5% of your purchase.

Burnside Church, Wairarapa, New Zealand, 10 December 2005

Burnside Church, Wairarapa, New Zealand, 10 December 2005

This church was built in 1875 and is a typical example of rural New Zealand churches of its era. It is still in use and beautifully preserved and maintained outside and in. This part of the North Island was originally settled by Europeans who purchased the land from local Maori and opened up large sheep runs. This was achieved peacefully because the local iwi believed that European settlement would offer them protections against the aggressions of the Taranaki tribes, and because some important tribal chiefs were converted to Christianity by William Colenso.

This church was built as a chapel for a single farm and its workers. That is why it is not in a village. This history reminds me of many estate churches in England – for example that at Parham in West Sussex where my son got married.

We couldn’t get inside because it was locked, but the interior woodwork is a must for a return visit!
