Stories of Hope Synopsis

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is one of the bestselling books of the 21st Century. Now, in this essential companion, Heather Morris presents an inspiring manual for life, with a series of tales of the remarkable people she has met, the incredible stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.

She presents the remarkable people she has met along her writing journey and the stories they shared with her. Additionally, Morris reveals more about her close friendship with Lale Sokolov, whose story she told, and the lessons we can take from those who open up to us. A wonderfully moving literary companion. * Woman & Home * a sincere...moving attempt to speak the unspeakable * The Sunday Times on The Tattooist of Auschwitz * What an extraordinary and important book this is. We need as many memories of the Holocaust as we can retain, and this is a moving and ultimately uplifting story of love, loyalties and friendship amidst the horrors of war. I'm so glad Lale and Gita were eventually able to live long and happy lives together, and thankful that Heather Morris was moved to record their incredible story. It's a triumph -- Jill Mansell on The Tattooist of Auschwitz Extraordinary - moving, confronting and uplifting . . . a story about the extremes of human behaviour: calculated brutality alongside impulsive and selfless acts of love. I recommend it unreservedly. -- Graeme Simsion on The Tattooist of Auschwitz a touching and redemptive tale of love and selflessness * Times Literary Supplement on The Tattooist of Auschwitz * Cilka's extraordinary courage in the face of evil and her determination to survive against the odds will stay with you long after you've finished reading this heartrending book * Sunday Express on Cilka's Journey * her courage and determination to survive makes for a heartrending read * Daily Mirror on Cilka's Journey * Her truly incredible story is one to be read by everyone * The Sun on Cilka's Journey *
