Summary
East Village, 1989. Things had never been easy between Ava Fisher and her estranged mother Ilse. Too many questions hovered between them : Who was Ava's father? Where had Ilse been during the war? Why had she left her only child in a German orphanage during the war{u2019}s final months? But now Ilse{u2019}s ashes have arrived from Germany, and with them, a trove of unsent letters addressed to someone else unknown to Ava : Renate Bauer, a childhood friend. As her mother{u2019}s letters unfurl a dark past, Ava spirals deep into the shocking history of a woman she never truly knew. Berlin, 1933. As the Nazi party tightens its grip on the city, Ilse and Renate find their friendship under siege--and Ilse's increasing involvement in the Hitler Youth movement leaves them on opposing sides of the gathering storm. Then the Nuremburg Laws force Renate to confront a long-buried past, and a catastrophic betrayal is set in motion{u2026}An unflinching exploration of Nazi Germany and its legacy, Wunderland is a at once a powerful portrait of an unspeakable crime history and a page-turning contemplation of womanhood, wartime, and just how far we might go in order to belong
