And...Who Is the Real Mother? Publisher's Summary
Family isn't always bound by blood.
In the early 1940s, countless Jewish families were held prisoner in the Warsaw Ghetto before being led to their deaths at the hands of the Nazis. Amid this horror, one young Jewish girl is smuggled out of the ghetto. She's to live with Helen Dobinski, a friend of her mother's, who lives on the other side of Warsaw.
Helen's Catholic faith and her friendship with the girl's mother compels her to keep the young child safe from harm. But Helen's heroism comes at a cost. Because harboring a Jewish person is a crime to the Nazis, with severe punishment - even death - as the penalty.
Meanwhile, Helen is unsure whom to trust. Spies lurk in the shadows, ready to punish Helen and send the young girl she has come to love as her own child back to the ghetto. As the days pass, Helen's humanity is pushed to its limits. She is forced to do the unimaginable. And she must decide if she is willing to risk everything, her family, even her life, to save a young girl she is no relation to.
And...Who Is the Real Mother? is a compelling and thought-provoking historical fiction novel about the horrors of war and the power of love. In history's darkest hour, one person must stand tall...to shine a light for humanity.
