Summary
"It is 1904 in Hanover, Germany, and Frederick and Jette have fallen in love. When Jette becomes pregnant, the two must flee her disapproving mother. Where better to go than America, the land of the new? Originally set to board a boat to New York, at the last minute they take one destined for New Orleans and later find themselves, more by chance than by design, in the small town of Beatrice, Missouri. Not speaking a word of English, they embark on their new life together as newlyweds. Beatrice is filled with unforgettable characters: a jazz trumpeter from the Big Easy who cooks a mean gumbo, a teenage boy trapped in the body of a giant, a pretty schoolteacher to teaches more than just music, a minister who believes he has witnessed the Second Coming of Christ, and a malevolent, bicycle-riding dwarf."--Dustjacket flap
