This book switched back and forth in the story between Anna's life in 1940s Nazi Germany, and Trudy's (Anna's daughter) life,as a history professor in current day Minnesota. Why wouldn't Anna tell her daughter who her father was? It made me crazy that Anna was content with letting her daughter think her father was a sadistic Nazi official at a concentration camp.

Great book--couldn't put it down! Just loved the way the story was presented to the reader, not giving away too much until it all came together...

Read this a few months ago and forgot to move it to my 'read' list! My favorite Jenna Blum book is still her was Those Who Save Us, but this one was also good (especially reading about Minnesota.)

The main character Anna , was not , in my opinion, a likeable character nor could I understand her behaviour most of the time. I was so annoyed that she would not speak to her daughter about their shared posts in Germany during the war. Her poor daughter Trudy was living a life of research ( she was a professor of German history) trying to find out what her mother refused to share. Then one line at the very end of this novel really stuck with me , “ Weather she is a hero or not is immaterial . Each person has the choice to make about how to live with the past, thus dignity, thus invisible right.”
A novel of secrets and shame and perhaps forgiveness . Well written.
