I cried at the end of this book. It was just beautiful. In the beginning I struggled a little because the Polish names and words are so difficult and it became very obvious how little I know about the history of Poland. But by the end of this book, I was completely in love. In love with the country, in love with the people, and completely amazed at their stories.

The book is a perfect meshing of past and present. I am amazed at the author's skill in telling these very different stories side by side and connecting it all to family, country, love, and finding out who we really are. I love, love, loved this book, and it made me really interested in learning more about Polish history and culture.
