The Pieces We Keep interweaves past and present, as a young widow risks losing custody of her son when injuries from his recurrent violent night terrors raise suspicions of abuse. These dreams suggest connections to a past life. To keep her son, his mother must follow the mysterious trail unearthed by the boy's dreams, secrets of love and loyalty that have been carefully buried since the Second World War. Kristina’s previous novels, LETTERS FROM HOME and BRIDGE OF SCARLET LEAVES, earned her acclaim as a WWII-era historical fiction author. Though it’s set in contemporary times, THE PIECES WE KEEP incorporates dreams and flashbacks from WWII, for which Kristina drew on true-story inspirations – an extraordinary account of WWII German saboteurs caught on American soil, tragedies involving Hoover's spy hunt and FDR's secret military tribunal, and the documented account of a young boy with vivid memories of serving as a pilot during WWII.
