"Born in New York in 1963, historian Hester Rosenfeld - very American and marginally Jewish - goes to Munich to research the life of Heinrich Falk and becomes his mistress. . . . Yet Hester has her secrets, too, and the longer she remains in Germany the harder it is to keep them concealed. As she uncovers more of the Falk family's possible connection to Nazism, she finds herself reexamining her feelings about her own parents and her complicated attraction to Heinrich. As the lovers' intimacy deepens beyond the erotic, each suspects the other of hiding something about the past."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
