Story: I was expecting a build-up with this story. Especially with it being a series. I was NOT expecting to be thrown into the series from the very first page. I wasn’t expecting my emotions to be thrown all over the place with every chapter. This is definitely going to be a series that will stick with me. I will need to get physical copies of every book in this series. Right now, there are only three. I know that I’ve only read one of them, but I just KNOW that I will love the rest of the books in the series. I know that any book that comes from this series will become an auto-buy for me. I am even interested in trying to read other books by this author outside of this series. Her writing style is amazing.
Characters: This story is told from multiple points of view. Some were characters that you can’t help but to just adore. Even with their flaws. Like Naomi. She’s just such an amazing woman. I’d of loved to see more from her three girls. I would have liked to have seen less of the father’s point of view. However, I do understand the need to see his point of view. That’s all I can say without spoilers.
Critiques: None. Unless you count it being an emotional roller coaster!
Final Thoughts: I really do recommend this book. Not only is it a very powerful story, but it helps understand how things were during that time from a Jewish point of view. The writing style is also very incredible. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I just know that I’m going to be emotionally wrung out by the time it’s over. It’s worth it though.
