Books abt WWII & the Holocaust are my favorite to read but I just could not understand what the author's purpose was in this book. I had to stop reading it. The author mentions her family's past is centered around the Holocaust but mentions not wanting to talk about it. The book just sems like multiple ramblings about nothing.

I tried to read this...I really did...but I could not make it to page 75, and I skipped some to get as far as I did...this is magnificently disjointed...paragraphs would havenothing in common with what came before or after...author kept saying she did not want to share the story...maybe she should not have tried...and I share in the sheer horror of the Holocaust...I respect the people whose lives were forever changed by such a crime...but this story does not translate well on paper for some reason.
