Kaethe's journey from America to the broken ground of contemporary Germany becomes an act of recovery: of the lives intertwined by politics and passion, of memory and the invented self, and of Kaethe's search for a daughter lost to her, now grown and living in uncompromising isolation from her mother's past and present, somewhere in vast, resurgent Berlin.

"The prose is stupendous as Maristed's entangled layers of plot allow a look at modern Berlin through the eyes of its turbulent past." (Booklist)

Save your credit for something better. This tedious story is told from shifting times, so I kept feeling lost and disinterested. I could not identify with any of the characters, or even like them. I was so happy to finally reach the ending so I could try something else. The reader is my favorite which is why I chose the book.
