Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Staggeringly evocative, romantic, heart-rending, sensual and beautifully written…May very well be the Sophie’s Choice of this generation.”  John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author 
“Richman once again finds inspiration in art, adding evocative details to a swiftly moving and emotionally charged plot. Richman’s incremental descent into the horrors of the Holocaust lends enormous power to Lenka’s experience and makes her reunion with Josef all the more poignant. Though the framing device of the decades-long separation can be cloying, this is a genuinely moving portrait.”  Publishers Weekly
“Tragedy and hope, love and loss, and the strength to endure are expressed through Richman’s graceful writing and powerful characters, many based on actual Holocaust victims and survivors.”  Booklist
“Daringly constructed, this moving novel begins at the end and then, in a fully-realized circle through the most traumatic event of the 20th century, returns you there in a way that makes your heart leap.”  Loring Mandel, author of Conspiracy
