For those whose hearts were broken by The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
New York City, 2015: 80-year-old Elise Duval is a French Catholic who arrived in New York after the Second World War. When a woman from Cuba visits with letters written in German to Elise from her mother during the war, her world is forever changed as she remembers a time and country she'd long since forgotten and seven decades of secret unravel.
Berlin, 1939: bookstore owner and recent widow Amanda Sternberg is fleeing Nazi Germany with her two young daughters. She heads towards unoccupied France, but with such a hard fight for freedom, a peaceful life of safety is hard to find.
Based on true events, The Daughter’s Tale chronicles one of the most harrowing atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis during the Second World War: the 1944 massacre of all the inhabitants of a small, idyllic village in the south of France. Heartbreaking and immersive, The Daughter's Tale is a beautifully crafted family saga of love, survival and hope against all odds.
"The story line is breathtakingly threaded together from start to finish...Correa’s prose is atmospheric, but what’s most fascinating about this novel is his portrayal of terrified yet strong female characters who anticipate future trials and methodically work through them." (Susan Ellingwood, New York Times)
