  • Tugs at the Heartstrings, Romania World War II

    What a sad time story to tell. I’d visited Romania and was aware of the hardships a lot of people still face to this day, but this story put it all into perspective. The story follows a beautiful child who is abandoned by her loving parents, who then spend months hiding in an attic praying she’s been taken in and cared for. Meanwhile she is adopted into a well to do family and given everything a little girl could want and dream for. To follow the change of events post war, wondering will she ever know who her real parents are, the entire story made me so emotional and I couldn’t put it down. Hoping for more reads showing the Romanian point of view pre and post war after reading this. Highly recommend.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A heartbreaking story that could have been true.

    A lovely story. Very interesting to read about war time Bucharest. At times a gripping story while other times it meandered. I found I wanted Talia to be more heroic at times. The final meet up when Zora and Talia meet is very touching. Brought a tear to my eye as did learning about the Jewish buy back scheme.

  • The girl they left behind

    Nicely written book. Loved and saddened by the ending though. Enjoyed it. Sheds more light on past conflicts.
