I have always had a strange obsession with the Holocaust. A fascination that is yet to be satiated. This story of Anna and Trudie has been a generous and satisfying portion for that hunger. This story told in past and present by mother and daughter of their experience in wartime Germany and present day Minnesota is heart-wrenching and horrific. Anna is desperately hiding the truth while Trudie is determined to find it. Be warned of repeated detailed sexual scenes throughout the book that some readers may find distasteful. Aside from that, if you liked Sarah's Key you will also enjoy this book. I give this book 4 stars because of my huge interest in the subject matter.
