American Kid
by Constance M. Constant




Overview -
For Katherine and her three American children, Greece was meant to be a one-year refuge from the late 1930's Depression. Her husband's family-owned orchard should have provided for their well-being, but instead embroiled them in legal debate. WWII Axis bombings of Kalamata prompted the young family to flee to the remote mountain village of Katherine's birth, but Nazi invasion-and seemingly endless occupation of their village and their house-trapped them there until the war's end. Told through the eyes of John, Katherine's youngest child, he shares a universal story of fear and frustration faced by all innocent civilians during war in occupied countries. American Kid is a moving recollection of Katherine's courage, their family's sparse village existence on Mt. Parnon, and years of fear-filled interactions with Nazi soldiers.
