When Solomon Kugel moves his family to the quiet, rural town of Stockton, he’s hoping to leave behind the past or any memory of it. If he had it his way, there would no history to document the wars and genocide of years gone by. But he soon finds life isn’t going to be as woe-free as he hoped: his mother suffers from dementia and creates false stories about her time spent in Nazi concentration camps. But the worst is yet to come: Solomon is unprepared for the living, breathing piece of history he finds hiding in his attic.
