Summary
Esther's grandparents first meet at a church dance in London in 1947. Stephen, a shy young kiwi, has left to practise pharmacy on the other side of the world. Eva has grown up English, with no memory of the Jewish family who sent their little girl to safety. When the couple emigrate, the peace they seek in New Zealand cannot overcome the past they have left behind. Following the lives of Eva, her daughter Lisa and her granddaughter Esther, All This By Chance is a moving multigenerational family saga about the legacy of the Holocaust and the burden of secrets never shared
Summary
All This by Chance introduces readers to young New Zealander Stephen Ross. After training as a pharmacist in 1940s London, Stephen returns home with an “English” bride, Eva – who, it turns out, is actually of Eastern European Jewish descent but has staunchly repressed memories of her childhood flight from Nazi occupiers. Tracing the lives of their children and grandchildren into the present day, the novel explores thorny questions of faith, family, and personal identity. -- Kim Burton
