Coming up for air / Sarah Leipciger.

Leipciger, Sarah, (author.).


"L'Inconnue is a young woman lost in turbulent Paris at the turn of the nineteenth century. Amund is a Norwegian toymaker and father to two young children in the 1950s. Anouk is a contemporary Canadian suffering from cystic fibrosis, a medical condition that leaves her constantly fighting for air, swimming through the boundary between life and death as she awaits a lung transplant that could save her life. The way their stories intersect takes us ... through time and space, revealing how our lives can be changed by strangers--and how we, in turn, can shape events far beyond our apparent reach"-- Provided by publisher.
