“Correa’s prose is atmospheric, but what’s most fascinating about this novel is his portrayal of terrified yet strong female characters who anticipate future trials and methodically work through them. Amanda knows that each decision she makes will have an impact on the next, but her goal is always survival.” — The New York Times Book Review

FESTIVAL BOOK

The Daughter’s Tale

Based on true events, <em>The Daughter’s Tale</em> chronicles one of the most harrowing atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis during the war.

Berlin, 1939: When the Nazi’s burn down the Sternberg family’s beloved bookshop and send the father,  Julius, to a concentration camp, Amanda Sternberg flees toward the south of France, where the widow of an old friend of her husband’s has agreed to take her in. Along the way, a refugee ship headed for Cuba offers another chance at escape and there, at the dock, Amanda is forced to make an impossible choice that will haunt her for the rest of her life.

New York, 2015: 80-year-old Elise Duval receives a call from a woman bearing messages from a time and country that she forced herself to forget. Despite Elise’s best efforts to stave off her past, seven decades of secrets begin to unravel.
