Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In 1904, Ann's grandparents, Adolph and Yetta Manoy, and their three daughters left Tukums in Latvia, then part of Imperial Russia, to settle in Stratford, New Zealand. Their story was further revealed by the discovery of a set of beautiful postcards originally mailed to the Manoys from their homeland. These postcards sent Ann's detective story on a wider and deeper search for meaning. Why did her family conceal their past with a lifetime of silence? Was there a mystery, something to hide, or were they shielding their descendants from past traumas?
