Descrizione

Lucas and Katya were boarding school seniors when, blindingly in love, they decided to have a baby. Seventeen years later, after years of absence, Lucas is a weekend dad, newly involved in his daughter Vera's life. But after Vera suffers a terrifying psychotic break at a high school party, Lucas takes her to Lithuania, his grandmother's homeland, for the summer. Here, in the city of Vilnius, Lucas hopes to save Vera from the sorrow of her diagnosis. As he uncovers a secret about his grandmother, a Home Army rebel who escaped Stutthof, Vera searches for answers of her own. Why did Lucas abandon her as a baby? What really happened the night of her breakdown? And who can she trust with the truth? Skillfully weaving family mythology and Lithuanian history with a story of mental illness, inheritance, young love, and adventure, Rufi Thorpe has written a wildly accomplished, stunningly emotional book.

  • (5/5)
    This book gets an A+ from me for its realistic portrayal of all its characters and their interactions with one another. 17-year old Vera is one of the few relatable teen characters I've read. She possesses the ridiculous self-righteousness of a teen just as much as she is deeply introspective in a way that a human on the cusp of adulthood can be.

    There is something so compelling yet accessible in this journey of a father and daughter. Late into his daughter's life, Lucas tries to forge a relationship with this young girl who is having, what looks to be a psychotic breakdown. His family lore, his grandmother and her stories of survival during the war lead Lucas to suggest a trip to Vilnius, Lithuania in an attempt to find his roots but also to give his daughter Vera a change of scenery. Lucas is a wonderful, caring person, his daughter Vera a very intelligent and creative young lady, and in Vilnius much will be found and a bond forged from necessity. Narrated by Lucas and alternated with Vera's letters home to Fang, the reader learns of the disintegration of Vera's mental state. The writing is fantastic and their journey endearing. In Vilnius, Lucas will discover his past but also his future. Loved seeing and learning the facts of Vilnius, enjoyed the glimpses of humor and loved seeing how the relationship changes and grows between Vera and her father.ARC from publisher.
