This is the new novel from the US editor of "The Help" and "The Postmistress". Alex George's "A Good American" is a positive and uplifting novel about the American Dream. Germany, 1904: When Frederick and Jette must flee her disapproving mother, where better to go than America, the land of the new? Originally set to board a boat to New York, at the last minute they take one destined for New Orleans, and later find themselves, more by chance than by design, in the small town of Beatrice, Missouri. Not speaking a word of English, they embark on their new life together. From bare-knuckle prizefighting and Prohibition to sweet barbershop harmonies and the Kennedy assassination, the family is caught up in the sweep of history as they find their place in their adopted country. Poignant, funny and heartbreaking, "A Good American" is a universal story about our search for home.

Author Bio: Alex George studied law at Oxford University and worked for eight years as a corporate lawyer in London and Paris before moving from England to the United States in 2003. He now runs his own law firm in Columbia, Missouri.
