Hardcover; 352 pages
During World War II, Rose and Odette Aboulafia, very real young Jewish sisters living in Paris, France, were murdered during the Holocaust. Gassed in the ovens of Auschwitz, their remains were discarded, their lives forgotten.
Almost 80 years later, Tori and Tilly Austin, fictional sisters in a small southern town, discover and unravel the story of the Aboulafia family. It happens through Tori’s school project on the Holocaust and brings life-altering changes to the entire Austin family.
