The Hidden Child

Great book! I couldn't stop reading, and enjoyed the book very much! My jaw dropped at the surprises. It reminded me of Winter Garden in its mother daughter relationships full of complexities and sadness, and WW 2 themes. Wish Elsy could have known the truth about everything--she could have been so much happier and at peace.
