Janine Maitland | Subject of war story, 90

Janine Maitland, 90, who fled Nazi persecution in Europe and decades later, in events recounted in a book by her daughter, rekindled a romance that she had been forced to leave behind, died March 25 at a hospital in Bethesda, Md.

The cause was complications from pneumonia, said her daughter, Leslie Maitland, a former New York Times journalist and the author of Crossing the Borders of Time: A True Story of War, Exile and Love Reclaimed.

After its release in 2012, the book was featured on news programs that included PBS's NewsHour and the The Diane Rehm Show on NPR. Kirkus Reviews described the work as "a poignantly rendered, impeccably researched tale of a rupture healed by time." - Washington Post
