Summary

The Nazi regime claimed Terezin was a model camp, but when one London reporter lands behind its walls, she uncovers the horrors of this concentration camp that often served as a stop on the road to Auschwitz.

In 1939 Kája Makovsky narrowly escaped Nazi-occupied Prague and was forced to leave behind her half-Jewish family. Three years later and now a reporter for The Daily Telegraph in England, Kája discovers the terror has followed her across the Channel in the shadowy form of the London Blitz. When she learns Jews are being exterminated by the thousands on the continent, she has no choice but to return to her mother city, risking her life to smuggle her family to freedom and peace.

In the present day, with the grand opening of her new art gallery and a fairy-tale wedding just around the corner, Sera James feels like she's stumbled into a charmed life--until a brutal legal battle against fiancé William Hanover threatens to destroy their future before it even begins.

Connecting across a century through one little girl, these two women will discover a kinship that springs in even the darkest of times. In this tale of hope and survival, Sera and Kája must cling to the faith that sustains them and fight to protect all they hold dear-even if it means placing their own futures on the line.

"A testament to the past . . . to a time of both unfathomable loss and courageous sacrifice that we should honor in our hearts and minds." --Beth K. Vogt
