Set between WWI and the onset of WW II, Behrens weaves together the love story of Billy Lange and Karin Von Weinbrenner, the daughter of a wealthy German-Jewish industrialist.  Using archival letters of the characters, Behrens shows how the darkening history of Europe compels two young people to want to escape to El Llano Estacado, the mythical lands of Texas and New Mexico.  Epic in scale, unusual love story, lucid meditation.
