Synopsis

From the bestselling author of THE VOYAGE OF THEIR LIFE, WINTER JOURNEY and NOCTURNE This remarkable true story begins in the Polish city of Krakow in 1890 and spans one hundred years and four continents. God blessed Lieba and the devout Jewish patriarch Daniel Baldinger with eleven children, and this richly textured portrait follows their lives down the decades, through the terrifying years of the Holocaust, to the present time. Lives that personify the struggles and hopes of their century. MOSAIC is compelling storytelling at its best: from the fascinating detail of Polish-Jewish culture and the rivalries and dramas of family life, to its moving account of lives torn apart by war and persecution, this is an extraordinary story of a family, and of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage.

Indeed, the book has a cinematic quality to it, particularly when it comes to her family's varied situations under the Third Reich: her immediate family posed as Catholics to escape the Nazis, but other relatives were not so lucky.
