A Conversation with Teri M Brown
In this episode, Rich has a conversation with Teri M Brown.
Teri was on the episode “A Ukrainian Rebel Finds Sunflowers Beneath The Snow” talking about her first book Sunflowers Beneath the Snow and how she and her husband, Bruce, rode a tandem bicycle across the United States from Astoria, Oregon to Washington DC, successfully raising money for Toys for Tots.
In her award-winning novel, An Enemy Like Me, Teri M Brown brings to life a gripping story of love, war, and the complexities of family and identity. This captivating tale will stay with readers long after they have finished the last page.
In New Berlin, Ohio, a small German immigrant village, first-generation American Jacob Miller survived the Great Depression, met his wife, and began a family. Though his early years were difficult, Jacob believes he is moving toward his “happily ever after” until a friend is transferred to an internment camp for enemy combatants and the war arrives on his doorstep.
In An Enemy Like Me, Teri M Brown uses the backdrop of World War II to illustrate the anguish that Jacob, his wife, and his four-year-old son are facing as Jacob is forced to fight in a war that he had no hand in creating. Throughout the novel, Brown examines the ideas of xenophobia, family dynamics, and the realization that war is not won and lost by countries, but rather by the everyday people and the families who are standing behind them.
An Enemy Like Me is a must-read for fans of historical fiction. This powerful story brings to life the struggles of war, and its emotional impact, in a way that few other war books do. If you’re looking for an insightful, thought-provoking story that will stay with you long after you turn the last page, then this is the book for you.
