Pregnant with her first child and a recent convert to Judaism, artist Kali Miller at last understands the joy of being part of a loving family. But Kali must put her cosseted life on hold to care for her ninety-three-year-old non-Jewish grandmother who has inexplicably lit dozens of sacred Yahrzeit Memorial candles throughout her decaying Miami Beach home, almost burning it down. Kali probes her enigmatic grandmother Lillian for an explanation and information about her roots, but Lillian becomes increasingly paranoid. She believes that someone from her past has found her and a painting she has hidden for over seventy years. A painting Lillian associates with her inadvertent role in one of the most horrendous episodes in history. Plagued with nightmares, guilt, and terrifying memories of her life in 1930s Berlin, Lillian reveals cryptic details to Kali. But only when Kali discovers her grandmother’s secrets in the old house’s hidden rooms does the full truth finally emerge. A truth that, if exposed, will have devastating consequences for Kali, her unborn child, and perhaps even the world. Download and start listening now!

    " Sharon Potts is brilliant. This story is so well crafted, plotted and paced that it grips you from the very beginning, and can't let you go.The story moves back and forth between the 30's and today with purpose and suspense, building to a clever, unpredictable ending. What a story! "

    " This was an enjoyable little thriller. The plot became more compelling when an interesting unspeakable truth was realised. "

    " It kept me turning the pages. The characters were engaging, believable and multi-dimensional. Four generations of women with serious "sins of the father..." (or, in this case, mother), "nature v nuture" dynamic, but with a more diabolical twist than you'd expect. "

    " wow, I should not have ever started reading this book...could not put it down, a definite page turner! The ending caught me off guard, really took a turn. A very entertaining book that leaves you thinking, ...about life. "
