Synopsis: From the beloved author of fifteen bestsellers comes a stirring story of a deception that reaches across continents, oceans, and years.

LEGACY OF SILENCE

A prosperous family in Berlin cannot see what the future holds when they adopt a poor orphaned girl, Lore, instantly an older sister to their biological daughter, Caroline.  As the story opens, it is 1939, and Caroline and Lore are young women, living amid the madness engulfing Europe.  As their parents disappear into this madness, the two young women flee to Switzerland.  What happens next will change both of their lives forever, as a single act of duplicity reverberates through three generations even as they grasp new hope and happiness in America.

A story of family and lovers, betrayals real and imagined, Legacy of Silence will captivate listeners from beginning to end.  Belva Plain has crafted a remarkable tale, spanning the decades from the eve of World War II in Germany to the United States of today.  Grand in scope, emotionally powerful, it is her most eloquent novel yet.

Review: Take sibling rivalry, Nazi Germany, and a basement full of familial secrets, and you've got the makings for Legacy of Silence, the saga of two sisters' lives. It's Berlin in 1939, and lovely Caroline Hartzinger and Lore, her unattractive adopted sister, are forced to escape to Switzerland. To make matters more heinous, their parents don't survive, Caroline's pregnant, and her lover mysteriously disappears. Eventually, the two women immigrate to the United States and try to begin new lives, but their painful past continues to haunt them and becomes unavoidable when a love interest comes between them.
