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.
Saving Sophie was released today in Italy and I’ll be joining her soon. Garzanti Libri has arranged for several signings and interviews. June 10 in Viterbo at the Festiva Caffeina and on to Milano June 12-14. It’s a tough grind but I’ll just have to take the laboring oar and see it through. To borrow a phrase from my favorite doctor, “Oh the places you’ll go.” Caio
