About the Book
COMING IN JUNE: A NOVEL OF LOVE & SURVIVAL
INSPIRED BY REAL WWII RESISTANCE MEMBERS
FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE HOURS COUNT & MARGOT
“Past and present collide in Jillian Cantor’s latest propulsive and eloquent gem of a novel. Cantor captures the gravity of wartime Europe and combines it with powerful stories of love, loss and self-discovery. The Lost Letter is transporting; its flawless, breathtaking finale will make readers fall deeply in love with this stunning tale.”
—Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl
“A vivid and original book which spans World War II Austria to modern day Los Angeles. In this unforgettable tale of memories, love and reconciliation, Cantor writes with an absorbing voice and keen eye for detail that caught me up in the sweep of history.”
—Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Kommandant’s Girl
Cantor brings her masterful storytelling and immersive world-building to a heart wrenching love story that transcends decades, continents, and the brutal chaos of the second World War. From a stamp engraver’s apprentice in Austria on the eve of Kristallnacht to a journalist coping with her father’s memory loss in Los Angeles in 1989, THE LOST LETTER traces the path of a mysterious love letter that connects generations of Jewish families. Expertly weaving together stories inspired by real WWII resistance workers who used coded messages in stamps to communicate and a propulsive modern day family mystery, THE LOST LETTER explores what it means to love across time and place. A beautiful, poignant and devastating novel, THE LOST LETTER illuminates the lasting power of love. With international rights sold and already set to be translated into nine languages, the stories at the heart of THE LOST LETTER are universal and necessary.
