Leo­ra, a juve­nile court judge, wife, moth­er, and daugh­ter, is caught in the rou­tine of work, tak­ing care of her fam­i­ly and aging par­ents, and play­ing it safe. But she’s also a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Holo­caust sur­vivor. It’s an iden­ti­ty she did­n’t under­stand was hers until she acci­den­tal­ly dis­cov­ered a secret file of hand­writ­ten notes addressed to her father. A fur­ther dis­cov­ery of a seem­ing­ly ran­dom WWII post­card in a thrift store sets her on a col­li­sion course with the past in this lyri­cal mem­oir about secrets hid­den with­in secrets, both present-day and buried deep with­in wartime Europe.
