Published by iUniverseBooks
At her father's command, Annaliese flees as fast as her five-year-old legs can take her. Clutching her only possession, a corn-husk doll, she watches as her thatched-roof home, mother, father, and newborn brother are consumed by flames, pillaged at the hands of the French Ancien Régime.

Found and adopted by a sympathetic family that survives the same raid, Annaliese grows into a young woman, marries, and bears children. She and her family are repeatedly driven from their land and home as they try to escape religious persecution and poverty wrought by Louis XIV, who is feverishly pursuing political and religious dominance in Europe. Ultimately displaced by the raging wars, Annaliese joins thousands of others in the Blackheath Refugee Camp in England, awaiting word of her destiny from the benevolent Queen Anne.

Piecing together three generations of sparsely documented European history, Walrabenstein is a richly detailed and moving story of the Walrabe family's plight and flight for survival, from their rich farms and vineyards of the Rhineland, through their harrowing migration with fifty thousand other German, Swiss, and French nationals. Only when the Queen quietly charters ships to colonies in the New World does Annaliese find refuge and peace.
