    Overview

    Summary
    After finding a collection of her grandfather's letters, a journalist begins a search for the fate of the love he left behind in prewar Vienna six months after the Nazis took Austria.

    Years after her grandfather's death, Wildman stumbled upon a cache of his letters that opened a path into the destroyed world that was her family's prewar Vienna. Wildman had once asked her grandmother about a dark-haired young woman whose images she found in an old photo album. "She was your grandfather's true love," her grandmother said at the time. In the course of discovering Valy's ultimate fate, Wildman was forced to reexamine the story of her grandfather's triumphant escape. In the process, she rescues a life seemingly lost to history.
