Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When glamorous Regina inexplicably ends her own life, her ten-year-old grand-daughter Diana is devasted by the loss and haunted by questions she never got to ask her grandmother. Three decades later, Diana discovers her grandmothers journal which gives Diana a window into the unknown events of Reginas tumultuous life, including surviving World War I, the heartbreak of being orphaned, and the pandemonium of events during her immigrations from Poland to Vienna to Paris and finally to the United States. Diana draws strength from her grandmothers example, which sustains her when she receives some of her own shattering news. To share her personal story, Diana must first tell Reginas. The end result is a unique braided narrative, with excerpts of Reginas diary interwoven with Dianas own life experiences, creating a touching portrait between granddaughter and grandmother, their past and present, loves and losses, and the discovery of their shared legacy.

Synopsis:

Diana has questions she wishes she could have asked her beloved grandmother, Regina, a spirited woman who loved her, cared for her, and even taught her to type her first stories on a Remington typewriter. When Regina inexplicably took her own life at age sixty-one, ten-year-old Diana was devastated. More than three decades later, Diana discovers Regina's secret diary. She learns all about her grandmother's life-from the tragic death of her mother when Regina was twelve and her suffering in Vienna during World War I to her escape from the Nazis with her husband and daughter to her eventual arrival in the United States.Diana's reflections are interspersed with excerpts from Regina's diary. This unique, braided narrative presents a touching portrait of the relationship between Diana and Regina, and the way Regina's life and love still resonate with Diana today.
