About this author

My parents, who grew up in China, had no favorite books from their childhood to share with me, which left me to my own devices in the library. When I mentioned this to a friend, she was a bit stunned, and I understood this reaction. I certainly never felt deprived as a child, but as a parent, it's hard to imagine not having that link.

My own book is about finding the stories we discover about our families and how we are changed by them. I hope my book inspires its readers to find the powerful stories, both great and small, in their own families.

I'm not sure how it is that I haven't read this book before now, but I'm grateful for the friend who put this book in my hands. A Holocaust survivor's story, told in stunning detail, through his son, whose relationship becomes a part of the story.

I loooooovvvvved this book - each page was so exquisitely written. You can't tell me that Summer isn't real - I won't believe it. Her every thought, belief and hope brings her to life in a way that very few characters really do.

This book is so lovely it makes you ache. Ari (short for Aristotle) is a loner, spending his time wondering about his brother whom no one talks about. That all changes when he meets Dante.

I thought this book did a wonderful time capturing the confusi...more

“Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war

Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war

Demons run, but count the cost
The battle's won, but the child is lost”
Steven Moffat
