Tom Hope has only ever read one book in his life when Hannah hires him to install shelving for the shop, but the two discover an astonishing spark. Recently abandoned by an unfaithful wife, Tom dares to believe that he might make Hannah happy. But Hannah is haunted by memories: twenty-four years earlier, she had been marched to the gates of Auschwitz. Will they be able to transform their lives... and mend their broken hearts? -- adapted from jacket
