Set in the desperate turmoil of Germany during the final chapter of World War II, “Paper Boats” is an emotionally inspiring, fast-paced read with twists and turns, examining the inevitable crossing of ideology, prejudice and faith through two young boys, Otto, of Jewish faith and Joseph, a Hitler Youth. The most unlikely of partners, they are forced on an unforgiving journey, cast in deep personal conflict that is entangled with deceit and betrayal. Yet, they become bound to each other, forever challenging their individual perceptions of mankind and the world around them. But the reaper is never idle, and war tightens its grip upon Otto and Joseph as their journey unfolds. Otto’s heart wanes, Joseph’s hatred swells, and without warning, the steady menace of war unleashes an evil, the likes of which they have never witnessed before.
