Description

He is a young man, navigating career and relationship uncertainties, caught up in his own life. But a grudging afternoon visit in New York City with his grandmother will open windows to an untold family past - and a profound friendship with the extraordinary woman who will change his life.

Finding Maria tells a story of love and discovery, of tragedy and growth. As they walk museums and see films, they talk about her younger years in Budapest, including stories of Holocaust survival and an escape from Communism, leading him to a deeper and more mature understanding of his grandmother, and himself.

This beautiful memoir calls us to ask, to learn, and to love ... while there is still time.
