More Than I Love My Life

From the internationally best-selling author - and revered moral voice - a remarkable novel of suffering, love, and healing, the story of three generations of women and a secret that needs to be told.

More Than I Love My Life is the story of three strong women: Vera, age ninety; her daughter, Nina; and her granddaughter, Gili, who at thirty-nine is a filmmaker and a wary consumer of affection. A bitter secret divides each mother-and-daughter pair, though Gili - abandoned by Nina when she was just three - has always been close to her grandmother. With Gili making the arrangements, they travel together to Goli Otok, a barren island off the coast of Croatia, where Vera was imprisoned and tortured for three years as a young wife after she refused to betray her husband and denounce him as an enemy of the people.

This unlikely journey - filtered through the lens of Gili's camera, as she seeks to make a film that might help explain her life - lays bare the intertwining of fear, love and mercy.
