“Welcome to the Brennenbach of Midnight! The Curse Hours have begun.”

West Germany, 1968

When ten-year-old David Saidel’s parents are murdered, he is sent to live with his grandfather in the anti-Semitic village of Brennenbach. Miserable and lonely, David finds solace in his kindly Grandpa Ernst, who has one strict rule: never go out after midnight.

When David breaks curfew to search for his missing dog, he discovers why Ernst is so serious about his curfew: Brennenbach is cursed. When midnight strikes, the town is thrown back to 1943, the height of Hitler’s reign.

The Nazi ghosts that infest Brennenbach are just as dangerous as they were in life. They’re hunting for David, thinking he is the last member of a family they’ve been ordered to destroy.

Through the help of a little girl named Maria Rahm, David sets out to end the Curse before it claims more victims.

Award-winning author Elyse Hoffman has crafted an expertly woven tale of World War II’s horrors – perfect for readers of Marcus Zusak’s “The Book Thief,” or Michael Reit’s “Beyond the Tracks.”


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ” Where David Threw Stones by Elyse Hoffman is a well-written historical novel with content that intrigued me from outset. I have read plenty of World War II historical fiction, but this is the first one that involved a curse and time travel. I loved the way the author mixed the past and present with the curse. The author did an amazing job with not only David Saidel but also Maria Rahm. The two characters made the book something special with how they each had pasts that shaped them into the characters they became. I simply loved this book and I hope the author decides to write more historical fiction in the future.–Readers’ Favorite
