Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When Karl Kessel, a turn-of-the century German emigrant, receives an unexpected gift-another man's ticket to travel to America-he leaves behind his young wife and two small sons. Karl boards the KronPrinz Wilhelm, sailing for a country he knows nothing about - except that it promises the opportunity he covets. Arriving in America, Karl becomes obsessed with becoming the owner of a farm-to be his own man. When Karl's wife Katja steps off a train with their sons in the inhospitable wilds of sparsely settled Wyoming, she questions, "Is this where I am to spend the rest of my life?" Katja soon discovers that it is not only the geography of her situation which will make her life difficult, as she gives everything her husband demands of her, including eight children, but it is never enough. In her debut historical novel, Karen Schutte spins a compelling family story woven with rich historical detail, based on the true story of her own great grandparents' stark life in rural Wyoming. Her nuanced and unvarnished narrative exposes Karl's harsh nature alongside his determination to succeed at any cost. We see America change throughout the span of their life together. The family endures the Great Depression, world wars, and the unthinkable loss of a son. Karl's demanding and sometimes abusive treatment of his sons eventually drives them from home; yet it instills a fortitude that helps his fourth son survive the Bataan Death March. At the same time, we see the role of women change, as Katja finally becomes empowered to make demands of her own - to receive what was promised. The Ticket is an unforgettable and touching account of a true American family, filled with ambition, promises, love and loss, and ultimately, a legacy of survival. Book jacket.

About the Author: Karen Wamhoff Schutte was born and raised in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming on a farm homesteaded by her German-Lutheran grandparents. The oldest of four daughters, Karen attended a two-room school for the first eight years of her education, then traveled by school bus to attend high school in Greybull. She studied at the University of Wyoming for two years, married, and raised four sons.

After earning a correspondence degree from the New York School of Interior Design, she established Interiors by Karen in 1980, which she owned and operated successfully for the next twenty-five years. In 1984, Karen returned to the University of Wyoming, graduating in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in interior design. She then applied and was accepted into the American Society of Interior Designers as an allied member.

Karen recently made the decision to reinvent her life and pursue a longtime passion of writing. The Ticket is her first historical fiction novel. She remembers her own tender moments with Karl Kessel near the end of his life, and has dim memories of her diminutive greatgrandmother, Katja.

Karen and her husband Mike live in Fort Collins, Colorado.
