Sifting through the effects of her recently deceased father, a woman uncovers the story of his long-ago wartime affair with a beautiful French woman. WHAT REMAINS OF LOVE begins as a family mystery but opens up into a heartfelt story of loves past but not forgotten, of the burden of being torn between passion and honorable commitment, of living with knowing you can’t have what you most want. By turns sweet and bittersweet, a touching read. Keep the Kleenex close by.

What Remains of Love by Suzanne Trauth is a riveting saga of grand passion during the French Resistance in World War II, and its repercussions, which reverberate through generations on both sides of the Atlantic. This is a beautifully told family story of love, mystery, and forgiveness in the face of necessary secrets and the amends that must be made, even beyond the grave. Can a child ever really know a parent? Can love transcend loss? Can lifelong sacrifice justify unintentional betrayal? And can the heart expand to include relationships long denied? Trauth tackles it all and more in this gripping, moving, and deeply satisfying novel. A must read!
