The book contains a series of poignant letters from Irene's grandmother, left behind in Berlin, to Irene and her family, who were trying to build a new life in Boston. These letters provide a keen insight into Jenny's and Irene's parallel feelings of hope and despair, their courage as each adjusts to new circumstances and, above all, their powerful love for each other.
