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.

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.
The story brought tears to my eyes and the whole history of it should be passed from generation to generation.
I guess it was the very end but I wish it went on a little more.
Not just another Holocaust movie
I was in tears much of the book but it is so well written as well as well read I found it very powerful and I was very glad I listened to it. I took the chance and it was very good.
This is a gripping story that captures the essence of life during the time of Hitler. The book is thought-provoking, heartbreaking and heartwarming. It offers perspective on how quickly the quality of our lives can change and what the human spirt can endure. I have not read such a compelling, thought provoking book in a very long time. I would definitely look for another book by this author. Well done.
