Marcia Preston is the author of the sublime Picoult-esque novel, The Butterfly House, a former lovereading featured debut. I’m thrilled to say she’s back with the sensational West of the Wall. Preston’s latest is set in the fascinating period of 1960s East and West Berlin at the front line of the Cold War. Packed with heartwrenching choices, dramatic escapes and emotional turmoil, this is a novel I urge you to pick up and it’s perfect for readers looking for something deep, compelling and utterly rewarding. If you haven’t tried Marcia Preston yet, this is the one for you.

Comparison: Unique but try Bernadine Kennedy, Susan Lewis, Sheila Quigley.

If you like Marcia Preston you might also like to read books by Joshilyn Jackson, Susan Lewis and Sheila Quigley.

Synopsis

West of the Wall by Marcia Preston

A city ripped in two. A family torn apart.

Trudy Hulst has no idea if her husband survived his attempted escape past the newly constructed Berlin Wall, but she knows too well the consequences of his actions. Now branded the wife of a defector, she faces a life in prison. With no real choice, she is forced to follow, praying she can find a way to claim their child once she’s in West Berlin.

Surviving her harrowing break for freedom, Trudy learns the truth about her husband. Left to wander the wall like a ghost, she lives for brief glimpses of her son, stranded behind barbed wire and surrounded by armed soldiers. And Trudy knows she will do anything to get him back.

About the Author

Marcia Preston

Marcia Preston grew up on a wheat farm in central Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains. From her father, she learned the art of storytelling; from her mother, a reverence for books; and from Oklahoma's red earth, a love of wildlife and the outdoors.

Marcia lives with her husband, Paul, beside a creek in central Oklahoma, where she bird-watches, gardens and dodges tornadoes.
