And so here it is, a heart-wrenching but ultimately triumphant story of a woman named Lena Woodward, an 89-year-old Holocaust survivor, who asks Catherine and Liam to track down her childhood friend’s twin daughters, who had been lost while being transported to a concentration camp. Again, the historical details are compelling, if harrowing, and the pace brisk. The characters are memorable, as are the themes of friendship, courage and pain.
