Publisher's Summary

The year is 1957, and the place is Paris, where the psychic wounds of World War II have barely begun to heal and the Algerian war is about to escalate. Saffie, an emotionally damaged young German woman, arrives on the doorstep of Raphael, a privileged musician who finds her reserve irresistible. He hires her, and over the next few days seduces her and convinces her to marry him.

But when Raphael sends Saffie on an errand to the Jewish ghetto, where she meets AndrĂ¡s, a Hungarian instrument maker, each of their lives will be altered in startling and unexpected ways. As Saffie learns to feel again, her long buried memories, coupled with the inexorable flow of historical forces beyond anyone's control, create a tableau of epic tragedy.

The Mark of the Angel is a mesmerizing novel of love, betrayal, and the ironies of history.
