Description

Postcards from Berlin: A Novel

Margaret Leroy

Little, Brown and Company

June 27, 2009

It is the first day after Christmas break, and Catriona Lydgate's daughter, Daisy, has been ill for weeks with a mysterious flu. She seems better, but when Cat tries to drop her off at the school gate, Daisy wraps herself around Cat, too sick to go in. Cat looks into her daughter's eyes and is struck with the fear that something is seriously wrong. But her doctors can't find anything. Cat takes Daisy through a series of examinations, but the doctors are skeptical. Perhaps it is something in her daughter's head, they suggest. Perhaps Cat is being manipulated? With a fierce maternal urgency, Cat searches until she finds a doctor who takes her seriously, who listens at length, who believes this is a life-or-death matter. Cat trusts him with Daisy's life - until it becomes clear that he suspects Cat herself is deliberately making her child ill. From that moment, Cat's life becomes not one hell but two: She lives in fear for her daughter's life, and at the same time her concern is turned against her as her doctors and even her husband scrutinize her every act. And Cat's life is not free of dangerous secrets. She begins to lie about her past, afraid that long-hidden events in her childhood could seal the case against her. For months she has concealed postcards that have been arriving from Europe, notes that threaten to blow her life wide open. For it is Catriona's past that has the power to save or destroy her - and there is nothing she won't do to protect the thing she loves most.
