She finds herself reawakened by a former soldier. Their uneasy relationship, the caring for their disabled son, and the flowering of friendship with a beautiful Jewish woman leave her inner resources tested during the next war. Yet Lili emerges as her own woman, deeply reflective, spirited, and still fervent. Reading group guide included.
