my whole family read and loved this book.mother,sister and daughter.we all thought it was so different as it tells the story of a daughter of a war survivor,both now living in america, who is not jewish and her relationship with her mother.she is trying to unravel her mothers unusual war time experiences .
I first read this book about five years ago. Since then I have read it twice more. I love it. The subject matter is dark and emotionally troubling, but the story is simply gripping. Definitely in my top five books of all time and thoroughly recommended.
Couldn't put this down! Not your typical holocaust story but excellently written, captivating. One of those books that I need to pass on, but need to find the right person who will appreciate it! (book-lovers problems)
sorry for the late review. Very pleased with my book and having just finished it, I absolutely loved the story. Not the first time bought books from the seller and each time I am very happy with the service.
I picked this up in a bookstore in the US and the sales clerk immediately said to me ' it is amazing'. She was completely right. It regularly made uncomfortable reading and frustrating - more with Trudy's character's decisions. Beautifully written despite the topic and I would highly recommend it.
