'He had not been in this part of the attic before. Probably no one had for many years.
Next to him was a battered cabin trunk, the kind which was used on the old Union Castle Shipping Lines. The box had a lock of it but in manoeuvring it a little he found it suddenly releasing itself in his hand.
He gasped as he saw some of the contents of the trunk. What were these things? Where did they come from?
He picked up a tiny book which was encased in a silver cover and opened it curiously. This was not German or French; in fact the letters were not the same, not like any letters he had seen. He picked up a small silver cup with a silver saucer to match. It, too, had there strange letters around it.'
Hans Frederich learns about his ancestry and has to make a decision. Jenny Reynolds, a convert, while on the March of the Living, learns dark secrets about hers.
This book is both deeply moving and exciting as these young people, both lecturers in history, grapple with sinister things which keep arising from the past.
