Content descriptions

Summary: "Margot Brenner seems to have everything a 25-year-old could want: a medical degree, a pediatric internship at a prestigious New York hospital, an attentive boyfriend. So why does she abandon her boyfriend and intership for a position at a second-rate hospital in a small German city? She knows her father and brother were victims of the Holocaust when they became trapped in Germany at the onset of WWII, but she wants ... specifics. Her father's old friend, Willie Meinhof, who sheltered them as long as he could, and who suffered for that, should know. In Wolfenbuttel, where Willie and his son, also a doctor, now live, Margot finds suprising resistance from Willie. 'Let the past stay buried; let sleeping dogs lie,' is his attitude. But Margot persists, until the answers she finds show that things are rarely what they seem, and that an agonizing choice in 1939 has terrible consequences in the present"--From the back cover.
