Summary
"Eva Traube Abrams, a Florida librarian, is at the returns desk one morning when her eyes lock onto a photograph in a newspaper nearby. She freezes; it's an image of a book she hasn't seen in sixty-five years--one she recognizes as The Book of Lost Names. The religious tome in the photograph, a French text thought to have been stolen by the Nazis, contains a mysterious code that researchers can't decipher. Only Eva holds the key--but does she have the strength to revisit old memories and help reunite those parted in wartime? In 1942, Eva escapes Paris after the arrest of her father, a Polish Jew. Finding refuge in a mountain village in the Free Zone, she learns to create false identity documents for Jewish children fleeing to neutral Switzerland. But erasing people comes with a price, and with the help of a Resistance forger named Rémy, Eva finds a way to preserve the real names of the children who are too young to remember their true identities. The record she keeps -- encoded in The Book of Lost Names -- becomes even more vital when her Resistance cell is betrayed and Rémy disappears."--Book jacket
