Three Sisters has now published globally with Australia, New Zealand and the United States leading the way in early October, shortly followed by the UK and Ireland in mid-October.
The new novel from Heather Morris is based on the incredible true story of the Meller sisters: Livia, Magda and Cibi. When Livia’s son Oded was travelling to Israel he bought an edition of The Tattooist of Auschwitz which he then shared with his ema (mother) on arrival in Israel. Immediately Livia realised she knew the people in the story – she had lived down the road from Gita and had gone to school with her.
The family reached out to Heather who, within a week, was on a plane to Israel . There she met Livia and Magda, the two surviving Meller sisters, their amazing families and the family of their third sister Cibi z”l. As they talked about Lale and Gita, their memories of growing up in Slovakia, of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Death March, and finally the decision to move to Israel to start their lives afresh – to find love and work –it became clear that here was an extraordinary story of survival, family, love and hope.
Now you can discover this amazing story of these three young girls and their incredible lives. Three Sisters is a beautiful and heartbreaking fictional retelling of the lives of the Meller sisters, written in full collaboration and with support from the families.
