Overview
-

Two sisters, their mother, and a Nazi thief.

In 1939, a beautiful enameled heirloom menorah was looted by the Nazis, grabbed from the hands of its young Jewish owner. Too beautiful to kill, Aurora herself was singled out by the SS for “special duties.”

Eighty years later, Aurora’s daughters Zara and Lilly discover the family menorah in a New York museum. Haunted by their mother’s buried memories, the sisters scheme to get it back—but their quest takes a dangerous turn when the menorah disappears, leaving a trail of murder and mayhem behind it.

Aurora’s memories, it turns out, are very much alive; and now her secrets can bind the sisters together or tear them apart.

About The Author

REVIEWS
-

It is tied together with my mothers stories, but it is a book about sisters, really, a book of the survivors children. There is a mystery, there is humor—what is a Jewish book about tragedy without humor?—and there is love.
