Clara will not be daunted. Her life will not end when her beloved
husband dies too young. She will become a second mother to the young
children who live away from home in order to visit a rather special
school. When life becomes desperate for a particular class of disabled
children growing up in Nazi Germany she takes a few risks. Is her
ultimate faith in the goodness of human beings a fatal flaw that leads
to her tragedy, or is her story actually one of hope?
social history starting before World War 1 and continuing to the
present day, was extremely interesting and Clara herself had the
attitude that where there’s hope there’s life. A well-written and
thought-provoking book. "
