Well, after my recent trip to the heart of Deutchland, I am a bit overwhelmed with the desire to read WWII accounts. It is amazing to me that the scope of human emotion, tragedy and courage was felt on such a grand scale by all that lived during that time.... and in many cases, are the grey generation of today. I sat down this morning, and moved rarely... until i had finished the book in one sitting.

This book of fiction is written by a former producer for Steven Speilberg's Shoa Foundation. Clearly her experiences as a witness to documented accounts of Historical Holocaust survivors has moved her to account one such story.

At the heart of the story is a complex mother-daughter relationship and the evidence that in times of tragedy, people adapt to protect the things they love most. The story of shame and grief, turns into bittersweet truth about one woman's heartbreaking life.
