Abstract:

When Hilly's grandmother becomes ill with Alzheimer's disease, her family is turned upside down by revelations from her life during World War II. When Hilly₂s grandmother becomes ill with Alzheimer₂s disease, her family is turned upside down by revelations from her life during World War II. Hilly₂s German grandmother, HeidiGran, comes to live with her family after she gets Alzheimer₂s disease. As her mind becomes more muddled, secrets buried in her past start to emerge. Why does HeidiGran keep talking about a girl named Rachel? And why does she make racist remarks about Hilly₂s friend, Ruben? As Hilly struggles to cope with revelations about her family₂s past, she encounters racism and prejudice for herself when a friend becomes the victim of a mindless attack. This evocative and deftly told novel explores prejudice and its effects on multiple generations in one family.
