the author was trying make a parallel between the US Border Patrol and Hitler s SS but againreally The other complaint I have about it may be limited to the Kindle edition but I could not even read the chapter headers because they were written vertically and got completely lost in the margins the way the Kindle is set upA disappointment I would gladly have given a better review if the story had only Troubled Waters focused on Elsie and at war and post war Germany Review Posted on Reading Lark 3612 Baker s Daughter by Sarah McCoy is one of those books that grabs you and refuses to let you go There are so many elements that rise to the surface with this one that Iound myself havin.
