This luminous novel by New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Freeman weaves a vivid tapestry of war, family, and a love that transcends the ravages of time.
When Brooklyn-born Barnard graduate Kathy Ross travels to post-World War II Berlin to help displaced refugees, she never expects to fall instantly, irrevocably in love. But David Kohn, a young American physician, is tormented by the deaths of his parents in the Holocaust, and uncertain about the future. Kathy impulsively marries David's cousin Phil - a decision that will have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved. The charismatic heir apparent to a fur empire, Phil gives Kathy everything she could ever want, including a cherished son. But through the years - even as she forges her own career - Kathy is haunted by her yearning for the one man she can't forget.
