Publisher's Summary

Every Friday for the last 25 years of her life, I had lunch with Charlotte and each week she told me more of her extraordinary story. To all appearances, she was a strong and dignified survivor, with old-world courtesies, a twinkling sense of humor, and a lilting Austrian syntax. Yet deep within, she'd been scarred by a profound personal trauma.
Finally, just before she died at the age of 91, she chose to entrust me with this profound secret, and all at once I understood how it had affected her entire adult life. This is a story of friendship and strength, of courage and betrayal. It is an epic tale set against the backdrop of history.

A Well-told, Heart-wrenching Novel

This novel is excellent and I gave it five stars overall. I cannot find fault with this novel on any level. I gave the novel five stars for performance. The novel is narrated by the author and he clearly knows where every voice nuance is necessary to carry the story where he wants it. The story is a horror story, a piece of our world history, an international romance. This is a part of our history that should never be repeated. This is a story that should be read by all.
