Saskia Maarleveld and George Newborn provide a dual narration of this intriguing historical fiction with a time-travel twist. German bookstore owner Max Beissinger and German-Jewish violinist Hanna Ginsberg, star-crossed lovers, meet before WWII. Their love lasts far beyond it despite being separated from each other and despite Hanna's postwar amnesia. While the majority of characters are German, both Newbern and Maarleveld use American accents for much of the dialogue, an excellent choice that contrasts nicely with the subtle German accents they give to Hanna and Max. Music connects the threads of time tying the pair together. Scenes of Hanna playing would be enhanced by appropriate background music, although most listeners will be familiar with the classical pieces she is said to be playing.
