The Silver Music Box
- By: Mina Baites, Alison Layland - translator
- Narrated by: Jane Oppenheimer
- Length: 8 hrs and 16 mins
1914. For Paul, with love. Jewish silversmith Johann Blumenthal engraved those words on his most exquisite creation, a singing filigree bird inside a tiny ornamented box. He crafted this treasure for his young son before leaving to fight in a terrible war to honor his beloved country - a country that would soon turn against his own family. A half century later, Londoner Lilian Morrison inherits the box after the death of her parents. Though the silver is tarnished and dented, this much-loved treasure is also a link to an astonishing past.

A fascinating historical fiction!
Story follows account of one Jewish Family from World War I through to the 1980’s. Narrator excellent! The German people throughout the narrative really came to life!
