The Lilac Tree - 3/28
By Heather Dooley
, Allegheny Mountain Radio
It’s been quite a journey since writer Nicolette Maleckar of Pocahontas County lived in a Berlin apartment in 1939. That’s when, at 13 years old, she was sent to live in England while here mother stayed – and survived - World War II. Nicolette returned to Berlin after the war to work as an interpreter for the U.S. military, and that’s where her novel, The Lilac Tree, takes place. A revised edition of the book was just released, 19 years after it was first published. (3:22)
