Summary
"In 1939 Aron is a soldier in the Polish Army. Captured by the Germans his valued skills as a shoemaker protect him until his true identity is revealed. Shipped back for slave labor and certain death, fate reunites him with Gitel, the woman he has long pursued. Midst escalating violence they marry, and soon Gitel has a child. Their decision to hide with the girl jeopardizes the safety of others and the choice they are forced to make turns into tragedy. The Shoemaker's Daughter is a sensuous groundbreaking story of two poor Jews whose passion and bravado help them elude the Nazi net of terror. But even after being hidden by honorable Poles and the liberation there is still no safety. Now they must chance a dangerous escape to freedom. Gitel carries a precious secret that may derail everything they have fought for...and time is not on their side."--Page [4] of cover
