Heaven, Hell and Hoboken is a story filled with intrigue, ethnic tensions, espionage, romance and war.
Set in 1916 Hoboken, New Jersey, a city known before World War I as ‘Little Bremen,’ Martin Taupmann and Kurt Schneider epitomize all that is good about its residents: honesty, integrity, intelligence, courage. Yet with the onset of the war, they make choices that irrevocably change their lives forever. At the same time the demographics and power structure of Hoboken is transformed. The Germans of Hoboken are the most severely impacted and lose their dominance in education, business and employment.
