Lily Taub is the brilliant, beautiful and headstrong American daughter of Holocaust survivors. Seeking relief from their traumatized world, Lily escapes to Oxford University, where she meets Julian Aiken &mdash black sheep of an aristocratic English family. When Lily is invited to the family’s ancestral home over Christmas vacation, her deepening romance with young Julian is crossed by a shocking accident that affects them all. Julian must face the harsh disapproval of his anti-Semitic family, who consider Lily a destructive force, not only in Julian’s life, but to their own sense of order. In the King's Arms is a lyrical, literary novel about the healing possibility of love.

IN THE KING'S ARMS is in the league of amazing reads like SARAH'S KEY, THOSE WHO SAVE US, and other modern classics of post-Holocaust literature. Sonia Taitz writes with both poignance and wit about the daughter of Holocaust survivors, seeking to resolve her parents' legacy.
