about this book

In the great disorder of wartime Berlin, Lucia Muller-Rossi was an unofficial star: mistress to an Ambassador, the whole world to her young son, and guardian of all the lovely things her Jewish friends were forced to leave behind as they took the trains to the death camps. Sixty years later, one of those fine pieces sits for sale in the window of Lucia's antiques shop—and its true owner happens to pass by. In that moment, a whole lifetime of silence cracks open and Lucia's family faces the wrenching duty of examining a past almost too horrifying to remember.
