Summary
A novel that imagines what might have happened in America, particularly to one Jewish family in Newark, New Jersey, had Charles Lindbergh won the 1940 presidential election rather than Franklin Roosevelt and acted upon his anti-Semitic leanings
Summary

Lindbergh defeats Franklin Roosevelt in the 1940 presidential election, negotiating a cordial accord with Adolf Hitler, accepting his conquest of Europe and anti-Semitic policies, and igniting a storm of fear for Jewish families throughout America
