From the best-selling author of Red Hook Road, Bad Mother, and Love and Other Inpossible Pursuits: a spellbinding new novel of hidden artworks, romantic love, and the legacy of theft, that has at its center the fascinating story of the Hungarian Gold Train in the Second World War.In 1945 on the outskirts of Salzburg, American soldiers discover a train filled with unspeakable riches: gold watches, fur coats, and wedding rings, along with picture frames and Shabbat candlesticks. Jack Wiseman is the lieutenant charged with guarding this treasure-a responsibility that grows more complicated when he meets Ilona, a beautiful Hungarian woman who has lost everything.? Seventy years later, amid the shadowy world of art dealers who profit off the sins of previous generations, Jack's granddaughter, Natalie Stein, searches for the portrait of a woman she has never met, a woman who may help her understand the guilt her grandfather took to his grave. A masterly story whose roster of brilliantly drawn characters is filled out with flirtatious art historians, a crooked psychiatrist, traveling circus performers, and desperate lovers, Love and Treasure is a fabulously entertaining, impeccably researched novel from a bright literary star.

4.0 Love and Treasure, by Ayelet Waldman
Ayelet Waldman gives us three powerful stories in Love and Treasure, linked by an art nouveau peacock pendant. The pendant changes hands all too easily, but to each owner, it comes to represent to much: long held regrets, a death bed mission, a mismatched friendship. Read the rest of my review at ...
