Everything about Julia is a mysteryaher roots, her life, even her name. For years, she has lived in a nursing home, ignored and forgotten, tended to by nurses born long after her life was taken from her. Inspired by a true story, Nightingaleas Mask is a tense, fast-paced, tightly written account of one womanas impact on a family and on the world. It takes us through moments in history that are immediately recognizable: the eve of the rise of the Third Reich, the birth of Americaas centralized intelligence system, and the Bay of Pigs. But Nightingaleas Mask pulls us deeply into those events so that we see them through the eyes of an insider. That insider is Adriane, a woman who hides her murderous past behind a nightingaleas mask.
