The Blind Side of the Heart, Paperback Book

The Blind Side of the Heart Paperback



Amid the chaos of civilians fleeing west in a provincial German railway station in 1945 Helene has brought her seven-year-old son.

Having survived with him through the horrors and deprivations of the war years, she abandons him on the station platform and never returns.

This is a tale of hope, loneliness and love, and of a life lived in terrible times.

It is a great family novel, a powerful portrayal of an era, and the story of a fascinating woman.

Shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2010.
