Elizabeth von Arnim: Christopher and Columbus (1919)
By the Author of ‘Elizabeth and Her German Garden’.
A whimsical novel which makes some incidental points about identity.
Set in 1916, orphaned twin girls of mixed Anglo-German parentage find a hostile reception in wartime England. Their guardian sends them to the USA, where they meet with a variety of adventures and some suspicion because of their German name.
The cause of the ‘problem’ (a mixed marriage) is also the solution, giving the girls a non-alien nationality.
