The author of The Woman Who Heard Color transports readers to a dreary Good Friday in Prague in an "intriguing thriller"* as the mysterious death of a nun sets off a tangled chain of events that inexorably draws three strangers together-and forever changes their lives...
Just after the fall of the Berlin Wall, aspiring journalist Dana Pierson joined the hordes of young people traveling to Eastern Europe to be a part of history.

But the key to solving the puzzle may lie in memories of Dana´s long-ago visit, even as she is forced to face the reality of a more recent loss...
