'A captivating romantic thriller that spans decades, continents, generations and a world war' Lee Goldberg, Bestselling author and the writer and producer of Diagnosis Murder
'A fascinating tale of what it felt like to be a woman under the Third Reich and of one family's long hidden secrets' Elisabeth Gifford
When Maya was a girl, her grandmother was everything to her: teller of magical fairy tales, surrogate mother, best friend. Then her grandmother disappeared without a trace, leaving Maya with only questions to fill the void. Twenty-seven years later, her grandmother's body is found in a place she had no connection to.
Desperate for answers, Maya begins to unravel secrets that go back decades, from 1910s New York to 1930s Germany and beyond. But when she begins to find herself spinning her own lies to uncover what happened, she must decide whether her life, and a chance at love, are worth risking for the truth.
Tully beautifully sculpts a mystery that plays with past and present, traversing war in Nazi Germany, to 1910's New York, to the present day. This part-historical part-literary novel allows us a personal look into the Third Reich through a letter from a lost twin and the reminiscences of a grandmother whose memories remain trapped in an old regime.
