Germany’s sparkling Rhineland is the perfect place for a fresh start . . .

Warming people’s hearts with true accounts of kindness is what columnist Anna Kelly does best. But no one knows the private misery she endures in her abusive marriage. Still, leaving is difficult—until a deeply personal bequest from a beloved elderly neighbor compels Anna to travel to Germany. There she begins an unexpected adventure of paying it forward that will take her far from her complicated life in Brooklyn.

Arriving in the historic and picturesque city of Mainz, on the breathtaking Rhine River, Anna settles in at a cozy guesthouse filled with colorful residents. But fulfilling her task will require the help of a translator and knowledgeable guide.

Josef Schmitt will gladly shuttle the American visitor around if it distracts him from his dark thoughts. Ever since a serious accident sidelined him at the local excursions company, he’s been unable to forget the pain he caused or forgive himself. Now, accompanying Anna on her mission takes them both to surprising places—and they just may find the courage to truly set themselves free . . .

Anna, for the last two years, have led a life of abuse from her husband – caught in the trap so many abused women find themselves – thinking if they stick it out, maybe he will change and get help. Fortunately, an unexpected legacy from an elderly neighbor, along with a personal entreaty from him for her to travel to Germany on an errand, gave Anna the opportunity to leave her marriage and take some time for herself.

Saving Anna is the story of how Anna is indeed saved – not only saving her physical life, but emotionally and mentally as well coming to grips with what she had been subjected to. The travels she goes on while trying to fulfill Isaak’s request affects not only Anna, but also touches in a deep way Josef, the man who was hired to drive her and translate for her. He has his own demons to confront, and the story is as much about saving him as it is Anna.

This is a story of hope, of love, and the strength that can come from confronting the past – both the near past and the past that is further away.

Ms. Struth has done a wonderful job in capturing the emotions and conflicts Anna goes through as she attempts to start a new life. She also draws a wonderful picture of what life was like for the Jews in Germany during the time of World War II as Anna and Josef search for Isaak’s friend. What a remarkable book! Good job, Ms. Struth.
