This hauntingly lovely book is the best I’ve read in a long time.

It’s the story of Anna, a German caught up in the firestorm of Nazi Weimar and her daughter, Trudy. Anna’s selfless acts of kindness and her accompanying shame were well executed – believable and haunting.

Trudy’s own story is well marked by a life she can barely remember.

This Holocaust epic told from the German point of view gave what is for me well worn – the Holocaust – a fresh slant.

The characters are excellently executed and the story held my attention the entire way through – not an easy feet. The writing was beautiful and well done. I whole heartedly recommend this book and can’t wait to see what Ms. Blum comes up with next.
