SORT BY Relevancy
As Berger's novel moves back and forth from Vilna to Brooklyn, the focus is on Rosha and Mira as well as on Charlie's sister Jeanette. All three attempt to make sense of a life that often makes no sense at all. VERDICT: In this engaging debut, a semifinalist for Amazon's annual Breakthrough Novel Award, readers gain three different views of the effects of World War II on ordinary people.

Despite the title, bitterness is the dark driving force in this stirring debut novel of Holocaust survivor guilt-guilt about being safe. Told with candor and tenderness, there are two parallel stories of Jewish girls-one a teen, one an eight year old- from the same family but worlds apart during WWII.
Hazel Rochman, Booklist
A Jewish girl in Eastern Europe and her teenage American cousin experience the Holocaust years in vastly different ways in this bittersweet novel.... A tender look at immigrants in America and Nazi victims in Europe succeeds in educating and engaging readers.
From She Writes Press, September 23, 2014. Available from all major booksellers, bookstores and online.
