Book cover of The Lost Family by Jenna Blum. Shows woman in red dress drinking a cocktail drink in a bar.Photograph of the author Jenna BlumJenna Blum is back and will be talking about her new novel, The Lost Family.  The New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us has created a vivid portrait of marriage, family, and the haunting grief of World War II in an emotionally charged, beautifully rendered story that spans a generation, from the 1960s to the 1980s. Jenna Blum artfully brings to the page a husband devastated by a grief he cannot name, a frustrated wife struggling to compete with a ghost she cannot banish, and a daughter sensitive to the pain of both her own family and another lost before she was born. Spanning three cinematic decades, The Lost Family is a charming, funny and elegantly bittersweet study of the repercussions of loss and love.
