Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

1946. Essen, Germany.

Clara. Once a wartime icon and heiress to the Falkenberg iron works; now on the run from the Allied authorities, accused of complicity in her father's war crimes.

Jakob. A charming black marketeer, badly wounded in the war but determined to help what's left of his family survive the peace.

Willy. A teenage boy diligently guarding a mine full of Wehrmacht supplies, his only friend a canary named Gertrud. Convinced the war isn’t over, he refuses to surrender his post. 

When Clara returns to her hometown expecting to find her best friend, she finds everything she once knew in ruins. But in war-ravaged Germany, it’s not just the buildings that are scarred: everyone is changed, everyone lives in the wreckage of their own past.

To survive, Clara must hide who she is. But to live, she must face up to the truth of what she’s done.

Critic Reviews

"Finding Clara is the kind of novel we need now more than ever, [and] achieves what the best historical fiction can...pushing us to see ourselves in that past, demanding: Who would you have been then? What would you have done? Unflinching and absorbing, [it] does not let you look away." (Sarah Blake, New York Times best-selling author of The Postmistress)
