    Fascinating

    This is a substantial read, so I am in still in progress. However, the story is captivating and very "human" from day one. If there is one thing I can say - they lived extraordinary lives --- but their daughter allows us to relate to her parents not as figures in history, but as people. They had love, triumphs, disappointments and sadness much as we all do. This is especially a sweet novel as it is written by their daughter. She is a wonderful writer. I highly recommend this book.
