Perhaps My Father


Year: 2020

Pages: 220

A disarming literary novel about one woman’s lies and her daughter’s courage.  

On her death bed, an elderly mother makes a shocking confession to her daughter: the man she always knew as Papa is not her biological father. During the Nazi occupation, her mother had an affair with a man who abandoned her after the war. In a search for the truth and the man who is, perhaps, her father, a young woman embarks on a more profound journey of identity. The shadowy secrets of her family’s past unravel and make space for a new and hopeful future.

 When memory is missing, insufficient or silent, we must create our own, trust our imagination.
