“This uncommonly affecting page-turner, set in postwar Germany, evokes equal depths of thought and feeling. Written in spare, keenly observed prose, it is a story of love, and of personal and historical responsibility, and the novel's wrenching moral questions still have me in their grip.”
— John Willson, Eagle Harbor Book Company, Bainbridge Island, WA

Description


For use in schools and libraries only. At age fifteen, Michael Berg falls in love with a woman who disappears. While observing a trial as a law student years later, he is shocked to discover the same woman as the defendant in a horrible crime.
