From the beloved author of fifteen bestsellers comes a stirring story of a deception that reaches across continents, oceans, and years.   A prosperous family in Berlin cannot see what the future holds when they adopt an 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 girls 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 for new hope and happiness in America.  A story of family and lovers, betrayals real and imagined,Legacy of Silencewill captivate readers 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, that ledThe New York Timesto proclaim her "in a class by herself."
