Item description for In Search of a Peaceful Land by Ralph R. Gardner...
Overview In 1831, the year following the French Revolution, many in Germany began pushing for revolution in Germany. Joseph Arnst Garrett had served under Napoleon when he was young, and he had witnessed the horrors of war. He also understood the political-ethnic-cultural makeup in the Fatherland and the fact that Germany had known warfare off and on for centuries, one war lasting for thirty years. He feared for his wife, two sons, and eight daughters, and he determined to take his family to America. But, would Metternich, the present ruler, or the young revolutionaries permit him to go and take his wealth? He owned three thriving businesses as well as his family estate. Johann Joseph Arnst Garrett, as the oldest son, has a hard decision to make: go to America with his family, join the young revolutionaries, or join Metternich's army. Hendrick Bhonn Haar, a 21-year-old orphan, is a friend of Johann's and works alongside of Johann in the Garrett family business. He is a Christian in the Brethren sect, which is hated by Catholic and Reformation Protestants alike. And he has fallen in love with Victoria, one of the Garrett daughters. What can come of this? Will he too go to America?
