    Not well developed...Frustrating

    There are 2 main story lines in this novel...the grandmother's experience of the Holocaust and the granddaughter's experience of a terrorist attack on her family. While I logically understand the connection Ragen was making between the experiences of the two women, she developed neither story well enough to make an emotional impact on me as a reader. I found myself wondering about what fully happened to the group of women in the Holocaust as Ragen often threw in references to experiences...but never tells the reader what actually happened. Further this impacts the granddaughter's story because the granddaughter reacts oddly to the tragic events happening to her...thinking more about the welfare of her grandmother than herself/unborn child/husband/or daughter. This reaction may have made sense to me as a reader if I had known more about the grandmother's memories...or had I known more about the character of the granddaughter. As I had neither, it often proved a frustrating read.

    This book could have been great...but very much misses it's emotional mark.
