A novel about love in adversity, familial loyalty and the relentless grip of the past on the present, The Things We Cherished tells the story of Roger Dykmans, a young German student who falls in love with his brother’s Jewish wife and then finds himself faced with making the ultimate sacrifice when she is arrested by the Gestapo.
With echoes of the very best of contemporary historical fiction, The Things We Cherished is another poignant read from Jenoff, who is also the bestselling author of Kommandant’s Girl and The Diplomat’s Wife.
