Publisher's Summary

Sixty-four years ago, Susannah Morgan managed to flee the horrors of the Holocaust. But the memories of that childhood ordeal have proven impossible to sweep away.

For most of her new life spent settled in sleepy North Carolina, the flashbacks have been a lonely obsession - one she has hidden from her family, and about which her heart is torn. Because for all the pain and the cruelty of those terrible years, she harbours sweet memories too, of unexpected friends who risked their own lives in order to save hers. As Susannah’s time on earth draws to a close, her innermost thoughts of those long-gone days become questions - ones that demand answers.

Against the wishes of her children, Susannah returns to Germany and the scene of unspeakable crimes. There she will come face to face with the Holocaust’s terrible, wretched legacy, and will finally make peace with the ghosts of her past.

Fantastic book!

A very thoughtful, personal story of a Jewish girl as she struggled to survive the Holocaust. I don't frequently cry while reading, but this story had me going several times. I'll be looking into other titles by Ray Kingfisher.

Brutally Honest & Eye Opening

This book was excellent and I loved the narrator. This book finally helped me understand why survivors of the Holocaust often don't speak of the horrors of what life was like in the death camps. After the war, many people were told to put the past in the past and move forward. This shows how impossible it is to forget. This was right up there with the Tattooist of Auschwitz. Highly recommend.

Sad, but lovely story about love, loss, and closure. If you only order one book this month, I highly recommend this one.
