There were times of joy: a son's return from the trenches of Verdune; the birth of grandchildren; a growing family business. But there was also fear. As the first stormtroopers march into Podersam, Nancy witnesses the disintegration of the family through their increasingly desperate letters.My Father's Roses is a compelling and intimate testament to the persistence of family, memory, and the bonds of kinship in the face of humanity's darkest hour.
