JENNA BLUM, The Lost Family: A Novel 

Jenna Blum, the New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us, creates a vivid portrait of marriage, family, and the haunting grief of World War II that spans three cinematic decades. In 1965 Manhattan, patrons flock to Masha’s to savor its brisket bourguignon and to admire its dashing owner and head chef Peter Rashkin. With his good looks and tragic past, Peter, a survivor of Auschwitz, is the most eligible bachelor in town. But terrible guilt over surviving the horrors of the Nazi death camp while his wife, Masha and two young daughters perished, consumes him. When he meets the beautiful June — twenty years his junior — the two begin a passionate, whirlwind courtship. When June becomes pregnant, Peter proposes, believing that beginning a new family with the woman he loves will allow him to let go of the horror of the past.
