Book Description

Nov. 1 2003 A Rebecca Temple Mystery (Book 2)

Winner of the 2004 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Paperback Original, short-listed for the 2004 Anthony Award for Best Paperback Original and for Best Historical Mystery

Still coming to terms with the death of her husband, Dr. Rebecca Temple tries to continue her practice and carry on with life as usual. She meets a charming Polish count who has written a historical novel based on his own family. During a visit to his home, she discovers a murder and soon realizes that the count's manuscript may contain clues to the killer's identity.

Frustrated by the inaction of a skeptical police department, she scours the manuscript for answers. As she reads, she journeys back to Enlightenment Europe and uncovers the true story of a love affair between the girl who would become Catharine the Great, and the young man who would become the last king of Poland.

In this eagerly anticipated sequel to the acclaimed To Die in Spring, Sylvia Maultash Warsh engages readers in an enthralling mystery that spans three centuries.

Find Me Again is a good old-fashioned mystery and a historical novel rolled into one.

(Canadian Book Review Annual)

...Warsh writes sensitively about the persecution of the Jews, and she shows convincingly how the actions of the past are not discrete-they have monumental effects on the present and future... In tying the threads of the mystery together, in the conclusion Warsh gives her characters and her readers hope that the positive side of human beings will prevail.

(The Edmonton Journal)

Toronto writer Sylvia Maultash Warsh picked up an Edgar Allan Poe Award. Find Me Again won the award for best paperback original. (Globe and Mail 2004-05-01)

a fascinating journey throught the 18th century world of a young princess through the horror of Nazi Poland and through the emotional upheavals facing a widowed young professional. (The Historical Novels Review, Issue 34, 2005-11-01)

5.0 out of 5 stars good read Feb. 14 2009
Format:Paperback
I found the book extremely interesting. The background of the story includes areas I know well and for me that factor is a plus.

The two stories fit together seamlessly. I loaned the book to my smartest friend with a solid recommendation. Now I plan to buy her first book

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Wait Feb. 1 2004
By Lou Allin TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
FIND ME AGAIN was well worth the wait. The second in the Rebecca Temple series set in Toronto in the late Seventies finds the sensitive physician still trying to come to terms with the premature death of her husband. While her relationship with her own Jewish family is an anchor, maintaining a friendship with strong-minded Sarah, her mother-in-law, is a challenge. This talented and complex older woman welcomes a former friend from wartime Poland who has brought her daughter to Canada to treat a serious blood disease. A tangled web emerges, with horrifying tales of treachery and savagery when Poland served as workcamp and deathcamp for Jews and ethnics. With this black scene in the background, enter a charming Polish count now working for a mining company mogul who may or may not be the sick girl's father. A historical novelist on the verge of publication, the count spins tales of Enlightenment Europe, intermarriage at the courts, and intrigue with the future Catherine the Great and the last king of Poland. Does his hexadactyly (six fingers) hold the key to a genetic conundrum? Chapters alternate a subtle modern courtship with a historical mystery, and Warsh embraces the scholarship to furnish convincing and often bemusing details of harrowing trips across old Russia and nights in drafty and crumbling palace halls. Her description of the fur-lined sleigh which contains a stove and mattresses, so large that a dozen horses must pull it, conjures up a matchless image. The spectre of the fabled Scottish Young Pretender haunting the courts of Europe adds another dimension to an exciting period. This book is a dazzling and thought-provoking read, a whirlwind tour of a young woman caught in the snares of love, and one also enthralled, who watches from the perspective of centuries, powerless to help, but too fascinated to turn away.
