Here is a brief synopsis of the book:
Set in the desperate turmoil of Germany during the final chapter of World War II, “Paper Boats” by Erndell Scott is an emotionally inspiring, fast-paced experiential read, examining the inevitable crossing of ideology, prejudice and faith amongst the chaos of a decimated post-war culture. As each character strives to ﬁnd their own safety from enemies and persecution, two nine year old boys, Otto and Joseph, the most unlikely of partners, ﬁnd themselves saviors for one another. Companions cast in deep personal conflict and entangled on an unforgiving journey, they become bound to each other, forever changing their individual perceptions of mankind, and unbeknownst to them, their very own hearts.
The theme of this novel challenges the ideology of tolerance with the belief that in time it decays and builds resentment, which eventually leads to violence. Only through the true acceptance of one another can we as a society find peace and harmony.
As one of my reviewers put it, “You will laugh and you will cry, sometimes at the same time.”
I also wish to share something that is most important to me. Proceeds from the sales of this novel will go to Together We Rise, a national organization that helps parentless children of all ages. They are a very well operated charity that has only the best interests of the children as their focus.
I chose to partner with Together We Rise because after writing this book about Otto, who becomes an orphan, I could not sit back and do nothing. I had to do something. In many ways, as silly as it may seem, Otto became my son as we spent 7 years together bound to this book.
