Gruen is a Canadian-born dual citizen (Canadian and American) who moved to the United States in 1999 for a technical writing job. When she was laid off two years later, instead of looking for another job, she decided to take a gamble on writing fiction full-time. The gamble paid off. Her third novel Water for Elephants (2006) hit the New York Times bestseller list and reached number one on July 8, 2007. Her books have been translated into forty-three languages and have sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

At the Water’s Edge, again demonstrates Gruen’s talent for creating spellbinding period pieces in a poignant love story about a privileged young woman’s personal awakening as she experiences the devastations of World War II in a Scottish Highlands village.

Madeline Hyde, a young socialite from Philadelphia, reluctantly follows her husband and their best friend to the tiny village of Drumnadrochit in search of a mythical monster while a very real monster, Adolph Hitler, unleashes his Blitzkrieg against Europe. What Maddie discovers about the larger world and about herself through the unlikely friendships she develops with the villagers, opens her eyes not only to the dark forces that exist around her but to the beauty and surprising possibilities of life.
