By Warner, Kirsten
Christel is at shattering point. She's got two small children, her job in reality television is super high stress, she's an activist with Women Against Surplus Plastic and now she's being stalked. To top it off her protest milk bottle sculpture appears to have come to life like t...he golem of Jewish folklore and is reviving characters from a past she can hardly bear to confront.
Christel is Second Generation -- her father was a Holocaust survivor and a refugee to New Zealand after the war -- and she cannot focus on the problems in front of her without dealing with an inheritance that is both murky and unresolvable. And how to live with the secrets she begins to uncover?
