Born in the 1970s, novelist and poet Alison Pick was raised in a loving, supportive Canadian family like any other, but as a teenager she made a discovery that changed her understanding of who she was for ever. She learned that her Pick grandparents, who had escaped from Czechoslovakia during WWII, were Jewish, and that most of this side of the family had died in concentration camps - a fact that her own father had kept from Alison and from her sister. Engaged to be married to her long-term boyyfriend, but in the grip of a a crippling depression, Alison began to uncover her Jewish heritage, a quest which challenged all her assumptions about faith and family. An unusual and gripping story told with all the nuance and drama of a novel, this is a memoir illuminated with heartbreaking insight into the very real lives of the dead and hard-won hope for all those who carry on after.
