    Touching and challenging!!

    I love the contrast between following one's dream and passion and the quality of self sacrifice and acceptance. Using the backdrop of the US and Europe in the war years, the author has created a large family group of characters all alive, diverse credible! I'm a better woman for reading this story. Thank you!

    The Sweetness-A Novel

    Well done. The parallel lives an interesting juxtaposition between desire and necessity. I would have preferred that it did not end when it did, so it needs a 2nd volume to tell the tale of what happened next. A good and worthwhile read

    The Sweetness

    Loved this book. It incorporates what seems to me to be historical accuracy into a believable this This book brings together what appears to be historical accuracy and a believable novel. Berger follows two Jewish families. One immigrates to the USA before the war and the brother and his family is caught in Germany to experience all the horrors the war brings to them. A riveting page turner!

    Fiction or Truth

    This work of fiction could be so very real. From the very beginning the story grabs your attention and does not let you go. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book

    Authentic and Absorbing

    Two branches of the same family, separated by roughly 6,000 miles of circumstances, choices and their consequences during WWII and how the heart has its own agenda throughout it all. I enjoyed this story a lot and particularly enjoyed all of the smaller, individual stories that kept this family apart and also held them together. A couple of times I felt wrenched out of one side of the world as the story shifted across the ocean (the story was that good) but was quickly absorbed into the co-existing story (it was also that good). I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in experiencing a different perspective during a heartbreaking time of our collective history.
