A sweeping tale of love and friendship, for readers of
Suite Francaise, The Reader, and The Imposter
Clara Herzog is a privileged,
intelligent, and thoughtful young woman whose world is changed
forever when 1930s Vienna is swept up by the dark prelude of the
Second World War. The cavalry officer she married in spite of her
family''s objections is soon called away to the thick of the
conflict, and it falls to Clara, as to so many mothers, wives,
sisters, and sweethearts through the centuries, to stay at home to
provide and protect.
Through the war, its aftermath, and into
the present, Clara must make choices and take risks that are as
heroic and life-altering as any that men make in battle. She is an
unforgettable character, and this is an unforgettable novel about
family bonds and women''s deep friendships, about courage and the
love that can endure even in unimaginable times.
