it was ok
bookshelves: biography-memoirs
Read in January, 2009 , read count: 1

I hoped for more. This title was the hook for me and was not as expected. It possibly could have been a shorter book with less details and more focus on the aspects of the title. Very little historical information was provided about the family that hid the author's mother. That may have been a nice addition. Besides the basic property dispute very little was written about the house. What was daily life like? And other questions were never addressed. This book is more about the author's discovery of her mother's childhood and how her own lack of family knowledge prevented her from really knowing her own mother. The emotional relationship with her mother was the focus and she made a point to detail it almost too much. It was certainly a meaningful journey for the author and one she should be glad to have done.

This may not be a choice for you if you do not find Holocaust stories or mother daughter relationships interesting.
