Virtual Gliterary Lunch Hour with Heather Morris - 14th October
Join us to hear from best selling author Heather Morris, on the publication day of her latest new novel, Three Sisters.
When they were little girls, Cibi, Magda and Livia make a promise to their father – that they will stay together, no matter what. Two of the sisters live in Israel today and have chosen Heather to reimagine their story.
At just 15, Livia is ordered to Auschwitz by the Nazis. Cibi, only 19 herself, follows Livia, determined to protect her sister, or die with her. Magda, aged 17, escapes capture for a time but eventually she too is transported to the death camp.
Reunited, the three sisters make another promise: that they will live. Their fight for survival takes them from the hell of Auschwitz-Birkenau to a death march across war-torn Europe and eventually home to Slovakia, now under iron Communist rule. Determined to begin again, they embark on a voyage of renewal, to the new Jewish homeland, Israel.
Rich in vivid detail, and beautifully told, Three Sisters will break your heart, but leave you amazed and uplifted by the courage and fierce love of three sisters, whose promise to each other kept them alive.
