About the Book

Time Chords tells two deeply-felt stories based on true events: Stones: October, 1940. Joseph, an 8-year-old boy living on a farm in upstate New York is blindsided, then attacked and stoned by his classmates, an action set up by a manipulative, anti-Semitic teacher.

Drowning: July, 1943, portrays the boy's first encounter with death. Joseph leads two rabbi's sons, breaking into a weeds grown-wild deserted lake closed for the war. Another boy appears and a macho war game ends in a tragic drowning. Followed by a fierce interrogation and, wrestling with guilt, a search for elusive truth.
