In a practiced-sounding tone, Kristin Atherton narrates this dual- timeline historical fiction revolving around Nazi-era porcelain figurines created at the Allach Porcelain Factory in a sub-camp of Dachau concentration camp. There Clara Vogel searches for her father's identity. Atherton adopts a Midwestern accent for the opening scenes, set in 1993 Cincinnati. The balance of this story is set in Germany from 1929 through 1942. Atherton reverts to a polished British accent with hints of German as Austrian-Jewish architect Max Ehrlich and Bettina Vogel, a celebrated avant-garde painter, are drawn to each other and begin a romance laced with sadness. Atherton's steady, cultured tones help dull the horrors of Nazi Germany, especially the concentration camp and virulently anti-Semitic and racial slurs.
