I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a little predictable at times but interesting and moving none the less.

The story of a Jewish and a Christian family living in the USA during world war 2. Many issues are explored from a Jewish and Christian perspective in a warm, convincing and imaginative way, emphasizing the common ground of the Old Testament and the character of God. A very good read which makes the book hard to put down. Historical detail is well researched and fascinating.
Any additional comments?
A winner from Lynn Austin. From the first chapter I was drawn into the lives of the characters as they struggled to cope with loss, separation and fear during WWII Brooklyn NY. Austin explores concepts of love and family and faith on multiple levels. The story telling is complex and beautifully engaging. Another page turner pleasure to the very end.
