Alice has plenty on her plate. She is juggling the demands of modern life which include a son with autism. Tragedy strikes when her elderly Polish grandmother has a stroke. The grandmother begs her to seek out their relatives in Poland. At first Alice is reluctant but quickly relishes the chance to travel and reevaluate her life. The story also deals with Alina who lives in Nazi occupied Poland. She is in love with Tomasz but he is on the run from the Nazis and they become separated. The two stories become entwined as Alice discovers a big secret in her grandmother’s past. I found this a moving and enthralling story and did not predict the ending.
