Set in the aftermath of WWII, with flashbacks to how Anja ended up in prison. Try as she might, Anja will never recover from the tradgedies of her past. Her wounds (mostly self-inflicted) will never completely heal and those who love her will be hurt also. A lyrical but dark look at the effects of war on the human soul.

This story, set in the aftermath of WWII in Europe, made the New York Times Notable Book list. Two people, each with his and her own burden of remorse and guilt, seek to build a life together, despite the secrets they feel they can never confess. Brilliantly captures the capacity for "good and evil, betrayal and sacrifice" that lives within each of us.

Awesome book, kept me captivated. It is one of the few books I have read about live after WWII.
