Summary

Side Effects is a fascinating look at how two families - one English, one German - respond to the political and social turbulence of war and its effects. Beginning in the aftermath of Germany's loss in World War I and continuing past the close of World War II, this story traces the paths of the three Sattler children, and a British child, Michael Strang. They grow up and take stands of their own, suffering the consequences or reaping the rewards of their decisions. When the war has ended, they desperately seek different methods of coping with the grim memories of wartime that refuse to fade. The paths of the two families cross and re-cross, constantly reminding them of how much their worlds have changed.
