“The first non-fiction book from the author of international bestselling novels, The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey. ‘Stories are what connect us, and remind us that hope is always possible.’ Heather Morris In Stories of Hope, Heather Morris will explore the art of listening – a skill she employed when she first met Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist at Auschwitz. It was her ability to listen that led Lale to entrust Heather with his story, which she told as the novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Now she shares her story of how she learned to listen. Heather grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand. On her way back across the paddocks from school, she would visit her great-grandfather and listen to his experiences of war – stories he told only Heather. From a very young age, she learned that people would share their most sacred and intimate stories with her, if she stopped and listened to them. Stories of Hope will examine and explore Heather’s journey, in the form of a series of tales of the remarkable people she has met, the extraordinary stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.”

“Born in New Zealand, Heather Morris is an international number one bestselling author, who is passionate about stories of survival, resilience and hope. In 2003, while working in a large public hospital in Melbourne, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives. Their friendship grew and Lale embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Heather originally wrote Lale’s story as a screenplay – which ranked high in international competitions – before reshaping it into her debut novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Her second novel, Cilka’s Journey, is the sequel to The Tattooist of Auschwitz.”
