Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, an unexpected encounter leads to an inescapable glance of recognition, and the realisation that providence has given Lenka and Josef one more chance... From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

This beautifully written, heart-rending, evocative novel explores the power of first love and the resilience of the human spirit. * <i>Life & Living</i> * 'The reader is taken back to an age of innocence in pre-war Prague as the young couple fall in love. In Richman's fourth novel, the use of language is highly imaginative.' * <i>The Daily Telegraph<i> * The Sophie's Choice of this generation. * John Lescroart, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author * 'If you're a fan of Paulina Simon's The Bronze Horseman trilogy, this is right up your alley. Have the tissues near as the story of how they come to find one another again unfolds.' * <i>GRAZIA<i> * A lyrical tale of the ravages of war, lost and the human quest for redemption. * <i>The Good Book Guide</i> * Tragedy and hope, love and loss, and the strength to endure are expressed through Richman's graceful writing and powerful characters, many based on actual Holocaust victims and survivors. * <i>Booklist</i> * Heart-wrenching . . . a genuinely moving portrait. * <i>Publisher's Weekly</i> * Daringly constructed . . . Richman writes with the clarity and softness of freshly-fallen snow. * Loring Mandel, Emmy winning playwright * Begins with a chilling revelation and had me hooked throughout. A love story wrapped in tragedy and survival, I read THE LOST WIFE in one sitting. Tense, emotional and fulfilling: a great achievement by Alyson Richman. * Martin Fletcher, Special Correspondent NBC News, Winner of the Jewish National Book Award * This is one of those rare books that will stay in my imagination for a long time. * New Books *
