Shaena Lambert: Petra (historical fiction)

Interview, Ingrid Rose, Host, Carole Harmon

Petra is a novel, not a biography of Petra Kelly. Yet, in its pages fictional and real characters are inspired by and closely follow the lives and events of that time. In 1980's Germany, NATO plans to deploy nuclear missiles which are expected to face off against those of the USSR. The Berlin Wall still stands. World War 3 seems almost inevitable. A charismatic young woman named Petra Kelly, half German, half American, inspires, charms and reasons her way to the forefront of the Peace Movement  and becomes a founding member of the German Green Party. Shaena is a fiction writer and teacher who lives in Vancouver, Canada.
