This debut novel on the Holocaust theme is endorsed by a shout out from Heather Morris, author of bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz. When British artist Joseph Silks dies, his son John, with whom he’s had a troubled relationship, debates attending his funeral. But Eva, his granddaughter, mourns the loss as she’s always been very close to him. Eva then discovers a letter from the Jewish museum outlining the testimony he gave after surviving the Labour Camps in Austria and Hungary.Her beloved grandfather has a whole different identity to the one he’s created and passed on to his family. Eva reviews her own difficult relationship with her father, and his own with Joseph. In spite of refusing to allow his experiences to define him, Eva considers the ramifications of his secrets. Sherwood’s prose is lyrical. This is a profound look at how an event can shape not only a life, but the future generation’s lives.
