During the last moments of calm in prewar Prague, Lenka, a young art student, and Josef, who is studying medicine, fall in love. With the promise of a better future, they marry—only to be separated by the imminent Nazi invasion. But in the ghetto of Terezín, Lenka survives, relying on her skills as an artist and the memories of a husband she might never see again. Now a successful obstetrician in America, Josef has never forgotten the wife he believes died in the war. Decades will pass, but providence will unexpectedly offer Lenka and Josef one more chance.

"Staggeringly evocative, romantic, heart-rending, sensual and beautifully written…. [It] may very well be the Sophie's Choice of this generation."—John Lescroart
