Description

The Great War erupts in Europe. A devastating pandemic kills millions worldwide. Children are working in mines and factories, and women are testing boundaries.

An explosion in a Pennsylvania coal mine robs four siblings of their childhood. They watch in horror as grim-faced men carry their fatally wounded father from the rubble. Thirteen-year-old Robert is now to become the head of the family; Ceci looks after her younger siblings; Ilona works in the silk mill while Rudi hides his fears and vulnerability behind false bravado.

Forces beyond their control will shape their destinies. When Ceci marries, she moves to a small house on Hazelton, Pennsylvania’s Peace Street, providing a place of hope and stability for those she loves. But world events intrude, tearing the family apart.

While Ceci waits for letters, Ilona’s passion leads her in unconventional and dangerous directions. Her brothers, Robert and Rudi, join the army and report to Camp Hancock in Augusta, Georgia.

The House on Peace Street is a quick-moving saga that follows a family’s trajectory as they struggle to find inner strength in a rapidly changing world.
