From Carol’s Book Reviews:
I’m going to try to not write a book about a book. When reading this book, it felt like Peter just sat down and poured out his heart and his story, and said: Here. Here it is.
The book is in three parts, the first part is about Peter’s life in Germany and then a little bit about in the United States. Peter was 4 ½ when WW2 came to his town. His account of the war is heart breaking. Now I have to tell you, I have read books on victims of the Holocaust, but never a book about the average citizen living in Germany and having the Russian and Mongolian troops storm into your town and victimize everyone they saw. Brutally. There were times I put the book down to really think about what happened, the terror they felt, the Russian & Mongolian troops atrocities on the German citizens (women and children), and the life Peter and his family lived during the war.
Then we have after the war, and one sees the warmth and kindness of the Peter we all know. I know Peter as a friendly acquaintance, but obviously never really knew about his life. It just makes one think, again, of the people you know and what you don’t know about the life they have lived. But I digress…Peter writes about his work in the restaurant/hotel business, and I could just picture it all. Mostly, how people responded to him because he is so genuinely warm and friendly.
That is the main part I want to tell you about the book, the book goes on to moving to the US and his life thereafter. Then there is Part 2 (as I call it) has the sailing crossings of his vessel, Lady Lee and the Log of Lady Lee. Part 3 (again, as I call it) is the warm story about his dog, ZIGGY.
Hi, we’re never met, but I have a cabin in Sierra City…that my dad used to call God’s country place…anyway, received your book in the mail today and just finished reading it in one sitting. I cried for your Mother, your Father, and Aunt and most when you spoke of Ziggy. I have never read a 300+ page book in 4 hours…thank you for writing such a beautiful book with tons of memories in it to share. My husband couldn’t understand why I was for so long in the family room without the TV or radio on…he’ll know soon enough…I gave the book to him to read. (he’s ½ thru it now). Thanks again for providing me with the opportunity to read your memoirs.
Huebner’s story seems incredible; the author has included documentation of the time of the shipwreck. A touching and memorable true story. “A labor of love”-The Log, San Diego, CA
Thank you for the book: I have read the first 35 pages, and to say the least, it was upsetting. It is far easier to see a movie about war, or read a book; but to read about war, how comfortable we all feel, in our homes in Sierra City, I in Belvedere. How could this have happened. Or could it happen again. I can’t have imagined what your family did. As an avid sailor, dog lover, and grandfather. I am looking forward to the next 300+ pages.
