‘She touched the photograph in its gilt frame that was always on her desk, of a young, thin woman with very short hair and a baby in her arms. She had one last story to tell. Theirs. And it began in hell on earth.’

It is 1942 and Eva Adami has boarded a train to Auschwitz. Barely able to breathe due to the press of bodies, and exhausted from standing up for two days, she can think only of her longed-for reunion with her husband Michal, who was sent there six months earlier.
But when Eva arrives, there is no sign of Michal and the stark reality of the camp comes crashing down upon her. As she lies heartbroken and shivering on a thin mattress, her head shaved by rough hands, she hears a whisper. Her bunkmate, Sofie, is reaching out her hand…
As the days pass, the two women learn each other’s hopes and dreams. When Sofie sees the chance to engineer one last meeting between Eva and Michal, Eva knows she must take it even if means befriending the enemy…
But when Eva realizes she is pregnant, she fears she has endangered both women’s lives. They promise to protect each other’s children should the worst occur. They are determined to hold on to the last flower of hope: their precious children, who they pray will live to tell their story when they no longer can.
