“This is a fascinating story of thwarted love, longing, and the travails of one woman and one family within the broader context of war and persecution.”
Starred review, Booklist
Separated by war and her family’s disapproval, the young lovers—Janine and Roland—lose each other for fifty years. It is a testimony to both Maitland’s investigative skills and her devotion to her mother that she successfully traced the lost Roland and was able to reunite him with Janine. Unlike so many stories of love during wartime, theirs has a happy ending.
