Love and Treasure | [Ayelet Waldman]

Love and Treasure

Maine, 2012. An old man is dying with the weight of a plundered necklace on his conscience. As an US Army Captain in 1946 Salburg, guarding the 'Hungarian Gold Train' full of looted Jewish treasure, he fell in love with camp survivor and helped her escape to Israel. Now, as his granddaughter sets out to repatriate the necklace, secrets buried in the past are uncovered, stories of love and deceit linked to that beautiful, peacock-shaped pendant and to a priceless, long-lost painting.

Publisher's Summary

The Hungarian Gold Train, loaded with Jewish treasure. A dazzling jeweled pendant in the form of a stylized peacock. And three men who find their carefully-wrought lives turned upside-down by three amazing and fierce women, each locked in a struggle against her own history and the history or our times...

Maine, 2012. An old man is dying with the weight of a plundered necklace on his conscience. As an US Army Captain in 1946 Salburg, guarding the 'Hungarian Gold Train' full of looted Jewish treasure, he fell in love with camp survivor and helped her escape to Israel. Now, as his granddaughter sets out to repatriate the necklace, secrets buried in the past are uncovered, stories of love and deceit linked to that beautiful, peacock-shaped pendant and to a priceless, long-lost painting. Spanning a century of European and Jewish history, from 1913 Budapest to contemporary Israel, and filled with a vivid supporting cast of art dealers, freedom fighters, psychoanalysts and suffragette dwarfs, Love and Treasure is a thrilling, moving and haunting novel, one that bears an ever elusive question at its core, nested like a photograph hidden in a locket: Where does the worth of a people and its treasure truly lie?

    "Not Just Another War Story!"
    Where does Love and Treasure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That's a hard question as there have been so many excellent "listens"....In this "WWI genre" I would rate it second only to "City of Women"....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The character of Jack. He was the kind hearted American G.I. but did not forget his Jewish heritage.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis and Paul Hecht – was your favorite?

    Believe it or not, the Freudian analyst in Part II....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction came in Part II which I thought was going to end in a different way and then a twist in plot going back in time which I loved....That time period of 1919 was shockingly restrictive towards women as compared to today.


    Any additional comments?

    I await Ms. Waldman's next book!
