    Description

    An unforgettable novel of human kindness, inspired by an incredible true story.  

    Snow falls and a woman prepares for a funeral she has long expected, yet hoped would never come. As she pats her hair and straightens her skirt, she tells herself this isn’t the first time she’s lost someone. Lifting a delicate, battered wristwatch from a little box on her dresser, she presses it to her cheek. Suddenly, she’s lost in memory....

    January 1945, Dachau, Germany. As the train rattles through the bright, snowy Bavarian countryside, the still beauty outside the window hides the terrible scenes inside the train, where men and women are packed together, cold and terrified. Jewish watchmaker Isaac Schüller can’t understand how he came to be here, and is certain he won’t be leaving alive. 

    When the prisoners arrive at Dachau concentration camp, Isaac is unexpectedly pulled from the crowd and installed in the nearby household of Senior Officer Becher and his young, pretty, spoiled wife. With his talent for watchmaking, Isaac can be of use to Becher, but he knows his life is only worth something here as long as Becher needs his skills. 

    Anna Reznick waits tables and washes linens for the Bechers, who dine and socialise and carry on as if they don’t constantly have death all around them. When she meets Isaac, she knows she’s found a true friend, and maybe more. But Dachau is a dangerous place where you can never take love for granted, and when Isaac discovers a heartbreaking secret hidden in the depths of Becher’s workshop, it will put Anna and Issac in terrible danger....

    Perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, We Were the Lucky Ones, and The Alice Network

    Tug at your heart strings kind of story

    I have read a lot of this particular genre and this story is one of the better ones. The characters are very well rounded. The story was easy to follow and flowed nicely.
    My only criticism is the narrators voice of the mother. It was very very whiny and really got on my nerves.
    Other than that a good choice and selection.

    One of the best

    This was one of the best Holocaust books I’ve experienced. There was enough of the truth of this horrific time mixed with the story of several different perspectives and how each was impacted. I’d actually listen to it again and I don’t do that often. The narrators was fantastic as their voices and varied pacing only enhanced the emotions of the characters.
