's review

it was amazing

This is a wonderfully-candid and well-written memoir. I had the joy of discovering this book about a week ago on Amazon and then realized that I met the author a few times when we were both MFA students in the same creative writing program at Queens University of Charlotte. I admired her writing then and I admire it even more now. Well-researched and compelling work. If you like family histories (especially set in Europe and including WWII up through the 1980s and beyond), books about Germany and/or Jewish history/ancestry, and a good, personal love story, then this book will move you. I read most of this book in a day-- it swept me up and away into a different time and a questing, fascinating tale that is at once articulate and forthright. Bravo, Annette! :)
