    This is a poignant coming of age memoir about the daughter of Ho

    This is a poignant coming of age memoir about the daughter of Holocaust survivors growing up in America. Beautifully written, surprisingly funny, tender and full of love and healing — an inspiring tale of forgiveness, tolerance, and the necessity of discovering and following one’s own path.

    I was impressed by this memoir, which tells the story of growing up in the house of immigrants. The author's parents are refugees from Nazi Germany, but the book could apply to so many other circumstances. It's a very American tale of starting over, of a child's wish to lead her parents to a brighter state of mind, to move forward to forgiveness. The ending is surprising and satisfying. All in all, a brave and touching book that made me think.

    "What a passionate and meaningful book. Sonia Taitz is an authentic writer as well as a person with a unique point of view and the talent to convey it. The Watchmaker's Daughter is a much about the holocaust as Angela's Ashes is about alcoholism. It takes a true author to make art out of trauma. The Watchmaker's Daughter makes us laugh and cry, understand the past and move into the future.

    Amazing read- moving and deep.

    I love memoirs, and this one is one of the best I've ever picked up. From the first page, I was gripped by the story of a young, eager girl who wants to provide comfort to her parents. Like the master watchmaker who is her father, Sonia Taitz really knows her craft. I didn't want the book to end because I didn't want to leave the world this author created.
