Publisher's Summary

A single treasured keepsake links one unforgettable family across continents in this enthralling saga by Mina Baites, the author of The Silver Music Box.

London, 1963. I dream about my sister almost every night.

Lilian Morrison has one memento of her beloved sister, Emma: a battered silver music box. A family heirloom that was passed down through two world wars, the box was the key to Lilian’s recent, joyous reunion with the surviving members of her birth family, whom she lost many years earlier when she and her sister fled Hitler’s Germany on the Kindertransport. Now Lilian is compelled to investigate Emma’s final days after the girls were shipped to separate foster families in Britain and the time before Emma was killed in the London Blitz.

In London, as she searches for clues to retrace the past, Lilian finds that the anguish of war still reverberates after two decades. In Cape Town, her grandmother courageously protects innocent victims of violence, and in Dublin, a gifted woodworker creates a music box that is strangely similar to the one that Lilian owns. Separate lives will intertwine on a path of healing and hope as the hazy secrets of the past finally come to light.

Nice

Sweet sequel to the Silver Music Box. Pretty well written, my mind did wander a few times. One too many side stories, like the one with Emmas grandma(?) in Africa. Didnt add to plot/story. I think the book was a bit too long,drawn out, was losing interest last hour or more.

Heartwarming, thought provoking

This is a beautiful follow-up to the original story. I enjoyed remembering each character. Well written, excellent read.

Dreams of silver

I enjoyed this follow up book to the Silver Music Box!! Although, it’s helpful to read the first book the silver music box it can be read alone!! I enjoyed the continuation of the family portrayed in the first book & the mystery surrounding the oldest daughters death.
