Críticas:

'What are you guys doing the weekend of January 24? No, you're not. Cross it off, unless it's a beach stay that will allow you uninterrupted time to read Mouillot's A Fifty-Year Silence. I have never before read a book like this one... The story is full of worldly drama - the Nuremberg war trials, a short but beautiful existence in the South of France - but it's the minute family-history details that make the book truly delicious.' Glamour.com, 'Best New Books Coming Out in January'

'Gorgeous... defines the pinnacle of this new genre... Meticulously researched and artfully constructed... a labour of love, infused with familial tenderness.' Jewish Daily Forward

'Eloquent and engrossing... Miranda Richmond Mouillot has imbibed her tale with the frisson of a detective story while gently introducing us to the charm and hidden pain of her extraordinary grandparents... A totally captivating journey that will keep you rapt from start to finish.' Australian Women's Weekly

'Written with an almost poetic transcendence of time, place and memory, this moving memoir chronicles an amazing circle of life. No fairy tale, it is as epic as the times in which Anna and Armand lived and the love they inspired.' - BookPage

'As Mouillot upends her own life to investigate [her grandparents'], she begins to understand the lengths to which people will go to protect their fragile dignity and comes to recognize the power of memories that both comfort and torment wounded souls. A vibrant, earnest, and profound tribute.' - --Booklist

Reseña del editor:

In 1948, after surviving World War II by escaping Nazi-occupied France for refugee camps in Switzerland, the author's grandparents, Anna and Armand, bought an old stone house in a remote, picturesque village in the South of France. Five years later, Anna packed her bags and walked out on Armand, taking the typewriter and their children. The two never saw or spoke to each other again, never remarried and never revealed what had divided them forever. A Fifty-Year Silence is a heart-breaking, uplifting love story spanning two continents and three generations.
