The Piano Tuner’s Daughter: My Best friend

The Piano Tuner’s Daughter by author Ingrid Silvian describes the friendship of two young girls who lived in the 1930s in Nazi Germany and how their lives changed after the war unveiled right through their own eyes.

Through vignettes of the lives of two young girl friends, one Jewish, one Christian, readers will experience how everything changed when the Nazis came. Silvian provides a child’s eye view of war, both mundane and profound – a shift from marbles to shrapnel as the treasure of choice; racing to catch the last train carrying evacuees out of the city – and ultimately, who was saved and who was sacrificed.
