SECOND EDITION – FULLY REVISED AND EDITED!
A heart-wrenching historical novel spanning seventy years, two continents, and a an imagined story that holds the power to create a safe future for a young girl. This page-turning family saga soars to a breathtaking ending that redefines the meaning of love.
When Natalie and Anna, sisters and life-long rivals, hide an abandoned child from the Nazis, their struggle re-opens a star-crossed love triangle, threatening their safety and testing the bonds of their loyalty.
Hungary’s fragile alliance with Germany insured that Natalie, a best selling children’s book author, and her family would be safe as World War Two raged through Europe. The Holocaust that has only been whispered about until now becomes a terrible reality for every Jewish family or those who hide Jews.
Beautiful but troubled Anna, a poet and university professor is losing her tenuous hold on reality, re-igniting a dangerous sibling rivalry that began in childhood.
The streets of Budapest echo with the pounding boots of Nazi soldiers. Danger creeps to the doorstep where the sisters’ disintegrating relationship threatens to expose the child they are trying to protect. In one night, Anna’s rash behavior destroys their carefully made plans of escape, and Natalie is presented with a desperate choice.
Interwoven with Natalie and Anna’s story, is Mila’s. The abandoned child whose future Natalie lovingly imagines in a story about an old woman named Mrs. Tuesday.
Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure is an inspirational historical novel spanning two generations and exploring the un-breakable bonds of sisters.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
From the first page I was immediately drawn into a story that could have happened to anyone if time and place had been different. It has been a long time since I felt I was a part of a story rather than being just a casual observer. I truly cared for the characters, their lives and the turmoil that played itself out around them. I am looking forward to more excellent writing from Ms. Anderson!
I just finished Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure and still trying to fight back tears. In the beginning one might question exactly why the story is broken up by excerpts of another book. In the end it all makes perfect sense. A beautifully crafted tale of a time when people’s humanity was in question. The indomitable human spirit will always survive. Great job!
This book kept me up until the wee hours of the morning. It’s well-written and the story very interesting. I have read a lot of stories about the Holocaust but never anything fictional. This could easily have been true.
Being set in a depressing era and covering hard material it is a marvelous, fanciful departure from the expected. Taking an expected topic (Nazi’s hunting Jews) but using a sense of humor. This is a marvelous book, and I think everyone should read it.
I love when I come across an unknown author or book like this one! I loved it and loved the characters. I finished wanting more!
