Book description
Still under heavy sedation after heart surgery, the occurrence of the 1858 drowning of an ancestor in the Brazos River over takes the mind of the patient. Upon awaking, the experience of the drowning, exactly one hundred and fifty years ago stays with him. Soon one coincidence after another weaves the present to the past and leads him on a journey back in time to Prussia and events and circumstances that bring his ancestors to Austin County, Texas in the mid 1840’s. Extreme hardships of sea voyage in steerage to life in a new land, at that time period are described with family history intertwined. The drowning of two brothers in Los Brazos de Dios (Arms of God) River suddenly collide past and present again leaving a sense of a force that flows through time like a river where today is only where we stepped out.
