From Heather Morris, the New York Times bestselling author of the multi-million copy bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey: a story of family, courage, and resilience, inspired by a true story.

Against all odds, three Slovakian sisters have survived years of imprisonment in the most notorious death camp in Nazi Germany: Auschwitz. Livia, Magda, and Cibi have clung together, nearly died from starvation and overwork, and the brutal whims of the guards in this place of horror. But now, the allies are closing in and the sisters have one last hurdle to face: the death march from Auschwitz, as the Nazis try to erase any evidence of the prisoners held there. Due to a last minute stroke of luck, the three of them are able to escape formation and hide in the woods for days before being rescued.

And this is where the story begins. From there, the three sisters travel to Israel, to their new home, but the battle for freedom takes on new forms. Livia, Magda, and Cibi must face the ghosts of their past–and some secrets that they have kept from each other–to find true peace and happiness.

Inspired by a true story, and with events that overlap with those of Lale, Gita, and Cilka, The Three Sisters will hold a place in readers’ hearts and minds as they experience what true courage really is.


Pensive, heartwrenching, and exceptionally absorbing!

Three Sisters is an evocative, beautifully written, touching tale predominantly set during WWII that takes you into the lives of the Meller sisters, three young Jewish women from Slovakia who, through remarkable perseverance and a long-held promise, manage to bind together to survive hell on earth, the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, and somehow still manage to go on to marry, have children, and live out the rest of their days in Tel Aviv surrounded by love.

The prose is haunting and insightful. The characters are vulnerable, strong, and brave. And the plot is a poignant tale of life, loss, love, survival, family, sacrifice, courage, selflessness, the unimaginable horrors of war, and the special bond between sisters.

Overall, Three Sisters is another thought-provoking, immersive, moving tale by Morris that does a remarkable job of reminding us of an atrocity that should never be forgotten, and the incredible ability for humanity to love and still be kind, compassionate, and resilient even in the face of unimaginable evil.

This novel is available now.
