Germany 1927: The English filmmaker Henry Whitaker is on a desperate pilgrimage to the dying Weimer Republic. The Present Day: Henry's daughter Miranda is on a quest to understand what happened to her mother, a refugee Henry married in Germany at the end of the war. Did Henry, as his daughter has always supposed, drive his wife to her death? Or do Miranda's half-repressed childhood memories hint at an altogether more complex and extraordinary truth? A rich and impassioned novel about the enduring marks of love, war, art, and guilt.More
