Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amazing story about WWII and how it affects lives -- not just during the atrocities of the war, but afterwards, when the effects pass on to the children. If you are given the chance to save your child by doing things that repulse you, would you do them? And how do you cope with your feelings towards a rescuer who is a monster?
The book moves back and forth between Anna's life during the war and her daughter Trudy's current-day struggles. I won't write any more, because to do so would give away the story, and it's a book you really need to read.
