Local author Janet Lee Berg's semi-autobiographical novel "Restitution" will be released Sept. 30.

In the new book, Rosenberg struggles with the ghosts of her past and current family troubles, returning to her homeland to face a difficult challenge.

"Rembrandt's Shadow" tells the story of how Rosenberg's family used art to save lives during World War II.

"Restitution" is available as a $27.95 hardcover, an $18.95 paperback and a $7.99 e-book.
