Searching for My Daughter
‘Say goodbye here, Mama, the platform is too crowded,’ my beautiful girl said as I kissed her through tears. The train would take her away from the threat of war but in that moment my heart was completely broken. Would I ever see my daughter again?
Germany 1945: Miriam arrives exhausted and hungry at a British checkpoint. ‘Not long now my darling,’ she vows silently to a daughter she hasn’t seen in six long years. She has been walking for two weeks but she knows she is one of the fortunate ones. One of the few to survive the camps. Having lost her husband and son, Miriam clings to the hope of finding her daughter, Rosa who travelled to England before the outbreak of war.
When Miriam walks through the gates, she meets a young officer named Jack. She knows that there are thousands like her looking for loved ones and she has no way of knowing if her daughter is in England or even if she is still alive.
But as she begins to tell her daughter’s story, there is a look of recognition in Jack’s eyes, and Miriam allows herself to hope.
Who was Jack to Rosa? Can he help Miriam find her? Or is he hiding something?
As Miriam finds herself once again embarking on a journey into the unknown – in a world still in the grips of secret allegiances and unforgivable lies – it will take every ounce of her strength to survive.
A mother’s love knows no bounds, but will Miriam find her darling daughter, or finally be defeated by the war that has taken from so many everything they ever loved?
An utterly gripping and unforgettable novel about enduring love, bravery and keeping hope alive in the darkest of times. Perfect for fans of The Nightingale, Beneath a Scarlet Sky and The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
