My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Within this book, you are going to see and feel things, that you may have heard told through stories, and seen on the TV screen by others. Here we will follow Artur Mandelkorn a young Hungarian holocaust survivor who is trying desperately to find his sister.
Artur remains sternly focused on this endeavor, and it leads him into the post war of Israel.
Suzy Kohn is a teen from Toronto, whose usual routine has been ruined by Israel’s war, causing her to lose her Uncle, and tearing her family apart.
After Israel’s six-day long war, Suzy and Artur’s paths cross, and the two are compelled to share their stories with one another.
Artur continues his search for his sister, now with Suzy by his side. Together, Artur and Suzy share their losses, and stories, and feelings, and eventually find that they have more in common than they thought.
Artur and Suzy start building on a friendship that unexpectedly turns into romance. The two share their loss, traumatic experiences, memories, and even Jewish ties, and realize that above all, it is family that weaves everything together.
I found this book to be truly exciting and even eye opening. I have never read a book that was anything like this. It was a new experience for me, to read something with a Jewish insight, and I truly found it enlightening, to say the least. I give this book five beautiful stars, and look forward to reading more books by this author in the future!
