Leslie Maitland, an award-wining former New York Times investigative reporter, grew up enthralled by her mother Janine's dramatic stories of last-minute escape from the Nazis in Europe and of her star-crossed love for Roland, a young Catholic Frenchman. Forced to part in 1942, when Janine, a German Jew, fled to refuge in Cuba, the couple had pledged to marry after the war. But dislocation and Janine's family thwarted their goal. Later, while starting anew with a dynamic American husband, Janine continued to dream of ther lost Roland, until Maitland ultimately set out to find him. This impeccably researched account culminates in the daring fulfillment of a vow of love made fifty years earlier in a world torn by persecution and war.
