From the book jacket:
" How has Kata, a middle-aged married woman from Amsterdam, arrived at this extraordinary situation with Stefan?
Like the layers of an onion skin, secret events of her family's past are revealed one by one. Kata's student days in Holland and her first love, her father Jeno's career as a cellist, his childhood in Budapest with Uncle Miksa, their peasant mother and prosperous middle-class father, then war, the terrible fate of Hungarian Jews, Jeno's escape to Amsterdam, the Dutch woman - Stefan's mother - who hid him there. And, at the very heart, a shameful cruel enigma.

Just as war throws the entire lives of a generation into disarray, along with the lives of generations to follow, so do the painful effects of love reverberate from grandparents to parents to children, shaping and reshaping their lives as they attempt to lay their own interpretations on the past."

A haunting afternoon read. Depth, emotion, pain, triumph, introspection.
120 pages - hardcover
