Berlin 1939. A few months after Kristallnacht, eighteen-year old Irene Spicker tries to flee to Belgium but ends up in a Nazi prison. Freed after a few weeks, she tries again—this time, in the dark of night, she successfully crosses the frontier. The Germans invaded Belgium, and Irene was forced into hiding. Constantly on the move, she worked as a farmhand, at one point using false identity papers. Arrested by the Gestapo, she sat in a cellar prison cell destined for transport to Auschwitz. To calm her fears, she made a small detailed drawing of her hand which was to save her life. Incarcerated in the concentration camp in Mechlen, she was assigned to paint signs, posters and numbers for her co-prisoners to wear around their necks. This is Irene Awret’s story of her first twenty-five years, from coming of age in a middle-class Jewish family to Mechlen where she met the young sculptor Azriel Awret, to liberation and freedom once more.

This story is fiction for the author’s convenience to weave an important lesson in our time. Based upon a real lake crafted in a swamp many years ago, the author’s great great grandfather could have been one of the horse-drawn scraper drivers. This lake provided water for a canal system in the area before the railroads took over. The lake became a valuable source of clean water for the towns growing around it. It also became important for recreation. But as the population grew, vacationing at the lake brought about development of landings and vacation homes, and the pressure on the ecology of the lake began to esculate. The public noticed the increased restrictions on the use of the lake. Finally, the safety of the lake was threatened and our story is related. Joshua MacDonell, a recent graduate of Ohio State, arrived to take on the job of Conservation Officer. Laticia Welton, a single mom, came home from St. Louis to see her Dad who had lived alone in Southacre since her Mom died of cancer. Saving The Blue joins Josh and Laticia in this special love story.
