Leslie Maitland - Mandel JCC Festival of Books
Book:  Crossing the Borders of Time: A True Story of War, Exile and Love Reclaimed

In this powerful, historical memoir, Leslie Maitland tells the remarkable story of her journey to find her mother Janine's lost love. Separated by war and her family's disapproval, the young loversJanine and Rolandlose each other for five decades. It is a testimony to both Maitland's investigative skills and her devotion to her mother that she successfully traces the lost Roland and is able to reunite him with Janine. Unlike so many stories of love during wartime, theirs has a happy ending. This non-fiction account culminates in the daring fulfillment of a vow of love made fifty years earlier in a world torn by persecution and war. This compelling non-fiction piece has received rave reviews: "Had Leslie Maitland set out to write a gripping romance novel, she hardly could have exceeded this fascinating account of her mother's life. . . . (It is) more beautiful than a novel because of the power of its true story and the richness with which it is told," one reviewer said.

Leslie Maitland is an award-winning former New York Times investigative reporter who spent a decade researching this book. She appears regularly on the Diane Rehm Show on NPR to discuss literature and lives with her husband in Bethesda, Maryland.
