Author

Summary
<b>Inspired by a true story, <i>My Mother’s Secret</i> is a captivating and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the mother and daughter who save them all.</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> Franciszka and her daughter, Helena, are simple, ordinary people...until 1939, when the Nazis invade their homeland. Providing shelter to Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland is a death sentence, but Franciszka and Helena do exactly that. In their tiny home in Sokal, they hide a Jewish family in a loft above their pigsty, a Jewish doctor with his wife and son in a makeshift cellar under the kitchen, and a defecting German soldier in the attic—each party completely unknown to the others. For everyone to survive, Franciszka will have to outsmart her neighbors and the German commander.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Told simply and succinctly from four different perspectives—all under one roof—<i>My Mother’s Secret</i> is a testament to the kindness, courage, and generosity of ordinary people who chose to be extraordinary.
