Marvelous Read

This was a fascinating read for me, especially its references to Hungary, both pre- and during World War II. Holocaust stories always spark my interest. The descriptions of Hungary made me really want to visit to get in touch with my roots. I also learned from a friend that the author is from Ann Arbor. I'd recommend this book if you like historical fiction, European or war history or stories about love and family relationships.

Great Book
