Perfection

Julie Metz’s life changed forever on one ordinary January afternoon when her husband collapsed on the kitchen floor and died in her arms. But that was only the beginning. Seven months after his death, just when this young widow and mother thought she was emerging from the worst of it, came the rest of it: her husband had hidden another life from her.

Eva and Eve

Shortly after her mother Eve’s death, Julie found a keepsake book that opened a window into the lost childhood of Eva, a Jewish girl who turned ten in 1938 as Hitler and his troops marched into Vienna. This memoir is a real-life detective story that offers moments of grace, serendipity, and lessons for this polarized moment when once again Otherness is the enemy.
