Un relato conmovedor en el que se cruzan las vidas de dos familias jud#65533;as y un desertor alem#65533;n con las de una madre y su hija, dispuestas a todo para salvarlos. Franciszka y su hija Helena llevan una vida corriente hasta 1939, cuando las tropas hitlerianas invaden su pa#65533;s.

Para que todos logren sobrevivir, ella y su hija deber#65533;n ser m#65533;s astutas que sus vecinos y que el temible comandante alem#65533;n... La cr#65533;tica ha dicho... #65533;La belleza de El secreto de mi madre est#65533; en la sencillez de su lenguaje y en la sutileza de su trama.#65533; Book Reporter ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Based on a true story, My Mother's Secret is a profound, captivating, and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the clever and "righteous" mother and daughter who teamed up to save them. Franciszka and her daughter, Helena, are unlikely heroines. They are simple people who mind their own business and don't stand out from the crowd. Until 1939, when crisis strikes. The Nazis have invaded Poland and they are starting to persecute the Jews. Providing shelter to a Jew has become a death sentence. And yet, Franciszka and Helena decide to do just that. In their tiny, two-bedroom home in Sokal, Poland, they cleverly hide a Jewish family of two brothers and their wives in their pigsty out back, a Jewish doctor with his wife and son in a makeshift cellar under the kitchen floorboards, and a defecting German soldier in the attic-- each group completely unbeknownst to the others. For everyone to survive, Franciszka will have to outsmart her neighbors and the German commanders standing guard right outside her yard.
