really liked it
bookshelves: golden-sower-preview

Another Holocaust book, but told from the point of view of a "rescued" Jewish girl who was sent to America by her parents. The fact that it was based on the author's mother's real experience made it compelling reading for me.
My favorite quote was in the forward:
"He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God" Aeschylus (C. 524-456 B.C.)
