When the Violin Weeps

When the Violin Weeps

When the Violin WeepsThrough life in a Warsaw ghetto and the Treblinka death camp, Jacob Liebermann lives for a day of reckoning with Klaus Hermann, the SS officer that killed his wife. After a harrowing trek to freedom in Palestine and joining Jewish resistance groups to combat a new enemy, Jacob makes the country home. He becomes one of Israel’s first Mossad agents. Then fate brings him face to face with the devil incarnate in South America.

“When the Violin Weeps” is based upon the disturbing true events of the Holocaust in World War II and the struggles to create the State of Israel. It is the story of appalling crimes against humanity. Forcing Warsaw’s massive Jewish population into an overcrowded ghetto to starve was Nazi Germany’s first undertaking after invading Poland. Next came the merciless transports to the Treblinka extermination center. When Jacob Liebermann’s wife Hanna is murdered in a gas chamber, the former Warsaw Philharmonic violinist fell into an abyss of insanity. But he keeps his promise to her to survive the Nazi atrocities at all costs.

Award winning author Glenn Starkey has written another gut-wrenching novel that tears at the hearts of readers and makes them feel every page.

“Into the Cauldron” Silver Medal Winner

“Into the Cauldron” Silver Medal Winner

My Civil War based novel “Into the Cauldron” was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2022 Military Writers Society of America Conference in New Orleans. I’m truly excited about this award, as I am with all awards I’ve won for my writings. 

After four cruel years, the Civil War still raged without peace in sight. The Union Army’s manpower was stretched to its limits fighting on two fronts; one on the eastern battlefields against the Confederacy, the other to protect the Santa Fe Trail and western expansion of citizens from marauding Indian tribes and vicious Confederate guerrillas.

Jonah Gustafson’s family was dead, leaving him to aimlessly wander. Rather than wait for the coming draft, he joined the 3rd Wisconsin Volunteer Cavalry, expecting to be sent east into the war between the states. Instead, his regiment went west to ‘Bleeding’ Kansas and war-torn Missouri. There, along the Santa Fe Trail, they fought every major Indian tribe and Quantrill’s Raiders, a roaming, bloodthirsty guerrilla unit. Horrid weather and deplorable living conditions were the lonely troopers’ constant companions. Death always lurked near whether from disease, a bullet, or an arrow. But the cavalry of the frontier fulfilled its duties against all odds.

“Into the Cauldron” is the life of Trooper Jonah Gustafson based upon true events written in the pages of a Civil War diary by a Wisconsin cavalryman that served on the frontier. It is a novel to enjoy and learn from; one that will carry you back in time to feel the joys, heartaches and anguish of those days.
