And After the Fire
A NovelBook - 2016
A masterful new novel from the bestselling author of "City of Light" and "A Fierce Radiance." Susanna's beloved Uncle Henry leaves behind a cryptic note that alludes to his haunting WWII experience as an Allied soldier in Germany. On his deathbed, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach bequeaths Sara the score of one of his father's cantatas. Sara is stunned to see its violently anti-Semitic lyrics. Weaving together the stories of Susanna and Sara, Lauren Belfer creates a majestic narrative that spans lifetimes and continents, encompassing both the best and the worst of the human spirit.
