In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

At first I wasn't sure of this reading. Both narrators I've heard so many times I thought I would hate it. But it is an excellent novel and the narrators ended up being so good for the roles, it's hard to believe I doubted them.
I LOVE historical fiction - especially of the WWII era. This is a great story (parts of which are true) intertwined with historical facts. My 2 favorite narrators make this an even better listen.
A beautiful story of love and loss and redemption. It is very sad at times, but it's not a depressing story. It also shows how even those who escaped the Holocaust's death camps and ghettos, were haunted by those they left behind. I highly recommend this book.
