Summary
"For twenty-four-year-old Eva Bruhns, World War II is just a foggy childhood memory. It's 1963, and Frankfurt's streets, once cratered from heavy Allied bombings, are now smooth and paved over. Business is booming at the Bruhnses' humble family restaurant, German House, and the entire country is eager to move on. Even Eva considers leaving her tiring job as a translator and becoming a housewife as she waits for her wealthy suitor, Jurgen Schoormann, to propose. But Eva's plans are turned upside down when a hot-tempered investigator, David Miller, hires her as an interpreter for former Polish prisoners recounting a harrowing place they call Auschwitz. As Eva learns more and more about her country's crimes, she begins to question her future and her family's silence about the past. Does she really love Jurgen, and will she be happy as a housewife? Why do her parents refuse to talk about the war? Are they hiding something?"--
