Summary
"In a quiet forest in Belarus, two boys make a gruesome find that reveals a long-kept secret: the mass grave where Stalin's police buried thousands of murder victims in the 1930s. The results of the subsequent investigation--30,000 dead--has far-reaching effects, and across the Atlantic in Toronto, young lawyer Leah Jarvis finds herself tasked with an impossible case: the trial of elderly Stefan Drozd, a former member of Stalin's forces, who fled his crimes in Kurapaty for a new identity in Canada. Though Leah is convinced of Drozd's guilt, she needs hard facts. Determined to bring him to justice, she travels to Belarus in search of witnesses--and finds herself piecing together another set of evidence: her mother's death, her father's absence, the shadows of her Jewish heritage. Lyrical and wrenching by turns, The Singing Forest is a profound investigation of memory, truth, and the stories that tell us who we are."--
