The extraordinary love story of an American blueblood and a German aristocrat--and a riveting tale of survival in wartime Germany

Sigrid MacRae's family story, A World Elsewhere, reads like an enthralling novel--one that would have remained unwritten had her mother, Aimée, not given her daughter the letters and journals she carried out of Germany during World War II.

While visiting Paris in 1927, Aimée, a wealthy American debutante, falls in love with Heinrich, a charming yet penniless Baltic German aristocrat. They marry, but life in 1930s Germany is bleak. Two years into the war, Heinrich volunteers for the Russian front. Left to fend for herself, and living in a country at war with her homeland, Aimée gathers her six young children and flees the advancing Russian army on an epic journey back to the country she thought she left behind.
