In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there’s an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers.

Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Staggeringly evocative, romantic, heart-rending, sensual and beautifully written…May very well be the Sophie’s Choice of this generation.” 

    John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author 

  • “Daringly constructed, this moving novel begins at the end and then, in a fully-realized circle through the most traumatic event of the 20th century, returns you there in a way that makes your heart leap.” 

    Loring Mandel, author of Conspiracy

  • “Richman once again finds inspiration in art, adding evocative details to a swiftly moving and emotionally charged plot. Richman’s incremental descent into the horrors of the Holocaust lends enormous power to Lenka’s experience and makes her reunion with Josef all the more poignant. Though the framing device of the decades-long separation can be cloying, this is a genuinely moving portrait.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Tragedy and hope, love and loss, and the strength to endure are expressed through Richman’s graceful writing and powerful characters, many based on actual Holocaust victims and survivors.”

    " This book was very good and was a pretty accurate depiction of the lives of the Jews in World War II. There were a couple of pretty bad word at the end when the Germans were telling them horrible things, but no gratuitous cursing. "
