Thanks to Edelweiss+ for the advanced copy.

Hannah Stone left Poland as a very small child and while she remembers many things from her time surrounding the Holocaust, the one thing she cannot remember is what she did to make her father not love her. Hannah discovers the family secret as her father's health worsens and it has to do with a sister that she does not remember.

The Stone story is told through a series of flashbacks as memories occur which helps lead the story in a well-put-together manner. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and was happy with the ending. I have read many stories based around the Holocaust and its atrocities but this is a different kind of story that, while paying homage to what happened there, shows that survivors were able to remain together and move forward.
