by Eva Krutein

Sequel to EVA'S WAR, this book tells of the Krutein family's nine years in Chile, where they are warmed by the beauty of the land and the openness of the people. Eva is sensitive to social injustice and machismo, and senses the pending violence of revolution and counter-revolution. As in EVA'S WAR, we see important world-events from a new perspective. These are real people, and the events described are not imaginary. The account mounts to its sharp climax -- the decision that the family must emigrate again.

available in e-book:

The author's abundant love for people provides the source of her political understanding.
--Cecilia Pollock, Citizens for Peace, Laguna Hills, CA
A cultural and ethical shock -- a time-warp into 18th century charm and brutality -- a rare glimpse into everyday life in Chile before and after Allende, as lived by a German family fleeing the horror and deprivation of mid-20th century Europe. Not a book of statistics or dry reports, but a lively account told with great candor and sensitivity.
--Anne Herdt, U.N. Representative, International Council on Social Welfare
The family's personal events are intertwined with Chile's social and political history from 1950 to 1989. Krutein witnesses the suffering of children with no future and women under the thumb of machismo, which only fuels her commitment to fight such injustice.
