Description:

From the best-selling author of Red Hook Road, Bad Mother, and Love and Other Inpossible Pursuits: a spellbinding new novel of hidden artworks, romantic love, and the legacy of theft, that has at its center the fascinating story of the Hungarian Gold Train in the Second World War.In 1945 on the outskirts of Salzburg, American soldiers discover a train filled with unspeakable riches: gold watches, fur coats, and wedding rings, along with picture frames and Shabbat candlesticks. Jack Wiseman is the lieutenant charged with guarding this treasure-a responsibility that grows more complicated when he meets Ilona, a beautiful Hungarian woman who has lost everything.? Seventy years later, amid the shadowy world of art dealers who profit off the sins of previous generations, Jack's granddaughter, Natalie Stein, searches for the portrait of a woman she has never met, a woman who may help her understand the guilt her grandfather took to his grave. A masterly story whose roster of brilliantly drawn characters is filled out with flirtatious art historians, a crooked psychiatrist, traveling circus performers, and desperate lovers, Love and Treasure is a fabulously entertaining, impeccably researched novel from a bright literary star.

Ayelet Waldman was born on December 11, 1964. She graduated from Wesleyan University in 1986 and from Harvard Law School in 1991. Before becoming a full-time writer, she worked at a New York law firm and as a federal public defender in California. She is the author of the Mommy-Track Mysteries series, Daughter's Keeper, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, and Red Hook Road. In her essay Motherlove, which was published in Because I Said So: 33 Mothers Write about Children, Sex, Men, Aging, Faith, Race and Themselves, Waldman admitted that she loves her husband more than her children. Her book Bad Mother was written as a result of the negative reaction to her essay.
