  • Little Golden America

    This story tugs at the heart. In dire circumstances choices need to be made, do we always make the right ones? What if our choices come back to haunt us? In an effort to keep her child safe, this mother sacrifices years of her life with that child. The guilt stays with her until she makes it right in her heart. Max and Vera and their four year old daughter are vacationing with friends when the Nazi's occupy France. Vera is a Russian Jewish Immigrant to France. When the Nazi's occupy France a notice is received that all foreigner's must report to an internment camp. Vera makes the choice to leave her daughter Lucie with the governess instead of subjecting her to the camp. Max and Vera escape from the camp and are able to make their way to America, but they could not go and retrieve Lucie. After reading the newspaper where the town Lucie was in with the governess is burned to the ground and all the residents perish Max believes Lucie is lost. Vera will not give up searching for her. Their marriage dissolves. Vera meets a Jewish American filmmaker named Sasha and together they go to France after the war to search for Lucie. What will they find? Is Lucie gone forever or did she manage to escape and if so will they find her? The story is about choices and regrets. It is about feelings and wounds left after the war. It is a story of the aftermath of war. Those returning from camps in their changed bodies and minds. It is about the facing of the horrors of the horrors of war after the war. Families searching for information and sometimes it is heartbreaking. No one escapes the consequences of war it changes people and nations. This was a good book to read it brought it home as to the horrors of war and the power of a mother's love. A belief in a better life and a new start. I would recommend it. Thanks to Alexis Landau, Penguin Group Putnam books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a copy for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
