I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end, could not put it down. It was beautifully written.

Beautiful and tragic, heartbreaking and inspiring….this is the type of book that flawlessly interweaves fact and fiction. Based on a true tragedy, the author introduces us to characters we can’t help but love and we follow them through their harrowing journey. I couldn’t put it down, even when I tried.

*******

I have never read a book by Roberta Kagan, but she’s instantly become one of my favorite authors. I could not put this book down (Kindle), so I was able to finish it quickly.

I blame this book for making me tired this morning. I thought I would start it before bed but I found myself staying up until 5am to finish it! It immediately hooked me in and did not let me go until the last page.

About The Author

When I was a child my mother kept a black suitcase in our basement. She forbade me to look inside. Of course as we all know the way to spark a child’s curiosity is to tell them they are forbidden to do or see a particular thing. One afternoon when my mother was out, I raced down stairs. Nobody was around so I opened the suitcase. Inside I found pictures and letters in a foreign language. Later that night I asked my mother what all of it meant. She told me that she was trying to protect me by keeping the suitcase out of my reach, but since I’d found it I might as well know that she and my father both lost their entire extended families in the Holocaust. So began my obsession with the Nazi occupation of Eastern Europe. Being that my father was Romany and my mother was Jewish, I had many aspects to research and much to learn. Finally, many years later…I wrote my first novel. It is set in this period. It comes to you, along with all of my work, from my heart, with love and hopes that someday there will be understanding and tolerance among all peoples. I thank you so much for your interest in my writing.

Love, Blessings, Good Fortune, and as the Gypsies say Good Road to all of you.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Roberta Kagan and ENT appreciate it.
