April’s book is House on Endless Waters by Emuna Elon

In this novel, the protagonist Yoel Blum is an author who reluctantly agrees to visit his birthplace of Amsterdam to promote his books, despite promising his late mother that he would never return to that city. While touring the Jewish Historical Museum with his wife, Yoel stumbles upon footage portraying prewar Dutch Jewry and is astonished to see the youthful face of his beloved mother staring back at him, posing with his father, his older sister…and an infant he doesn’t recognize.  Part family mystery, part wartime drama, House on Endless Waters is “a rewarding meditation on survival.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
