really liked it

Jumping Over Shadows is a captivating, deeply personal story of the journey the author as a young German/American woman in her relationship with a Jewish man, and also the story of her grandparents and forbears during the Nazi regime in what is now the Czech Republic. The stories are alive with discovery, mystery, and growth and they pulled me along even beyond my fascination with identity and it's relationship to history. There is much heart in this beautiful book!
