Publisher Description

‘Moved me to tears’ Angela Petch bestselling author of The Tuscan Secret

In 1944 in war-torn Dubrovnik Branko Milisic holds his newborn daughter Safranka and wishes her a better future. But while the Nazis are finally retreating, the arrival of the partisans brings new dangers for Branko, his wife Dragica and their new baby…

As older sister to two half-siblings, Fran has always known she has to fit in. But now, for the first time in her life Fran is facing questions about who she is and where she comes from.

All Fran knows about her real father is that he was a hero, and her mother had to flee Dubrovnik after the war. But when she travels to the city of her birth to uncover the truth, she is devastated to discover her father was executed by the partisans in 1944, accused of being a collaborator. But the past isn’t always what it seems…

History research was superb!

The history research for this book was so comprehensive and insightful into the trials and tribulations of the Jewish during this time and location. I would love to give this book a 5 star review except for the main character, Fran. I do love that the author wrote about a woman of this age who has gone through so many dilemmas in her life. And she is to be admired for finding her way to a more fulfilling life. I did not, however, like that Fran’s character literally thought through her decisions from about 5 different angles and then would circle back and re-think it all again. Kind of drove me crazy! I am a “get on with life” kind of person. I don’t dwell on all the issues of my past and allow it to affect my life. I am also in my 60’s and experienced some very similar life issues as Fran, including carrying for elderly parents before they died, and a sister who could give Patti a run for her money. I do understand the importance of this book as I have Jewish family members by marriage and it is important to acknowledge this awful history. Fran’s decision-making process was overdone. The character of Branco was heart wrenching and well developed, as was Jafran. I wish Jafran had been able to share more of his history. He would have been a more well rounded character.
