A truly sad book. The main focus was on the family before they left Germany. Brief glimpses of present day life. Amazing how many books have focused on WWII ( )
  shazjhb | Nov 25, 2021 |
This is a book about four generations plowing through life and trying to make the best of it starting with Klara & Julius, then Annelise and Walter, then Ruth and Mel and finally Claire & Matthew. The author introduced bits an pieces of their lives and how they were tied together. It portrayed the great toll it took on the Jewish families during WWII and what they had to do to survive through the horrors of war.

As a young girl worker for her family bakery, Annelise was in love with her childhood friend, Max. It broke her heart when he stopped coming by to see her only to show up with another young lady. Fifty years later, she saw their names listed on the Auschwitz column with those that had died. Annelise survived the war and died when she was 88.

Years later, Claire found a pile of letters - those collected and saved in the family over the years. She asked her mother, Ruth, if she was going to read them. It sounded like her mother was more interested in type of toothpaste she had at the time. Claire continued to ask, "Did you read the letters?" Her mother said, "No, I already know what happened."

While parts felt disjointed, that's how our mind works. We have deep thoughts but say different things on the surface. It's cleverly written that made me pause a few times but then it all made sense moving along. The Author's Notes are a must.

Book on CD read by Natasha Soudek

This is an historical fiction work set both in 1930s Germany and in contemporary Wisconsin, that tells the one family’s story. Annelise is the daughter of a loving couple who own a bakery in Feldenheim, Germany. They are Jewish but not particularly religious or observant, so when they begin to hear of the anti-Jewish sentiment, they are not very worried. But as Hitler’s power increases, things escalate. Annelise, her husband and infant daughter are able to leave for America, but her parents are left behind. Decades later, Clare, discovers a packet of letters her grandmother had saved, and begins to piece together the story of her family.

I liked how Fox tells the story in the mundane details of life. Young people chafe at restrictions imposed by adults, enjoy some school subjects and hate others, form friendships and find love. Adults shop for groceries, talk to their neighbors, go for walks in the park, try on a pair of shoes. Mothers meet to exchange information about child-rearing. And all the while devastation is looming just over the horizon.

There were parts of the novel I really liked, when I was completely engaged and caught up in the story. But there were other parts that just fell flat for me. I think this is my fault; I am just so over the dual timeline in historical fiction.

Lauren Fox based this work of fiction on her own family’s history. She discovered her great-grandmother’s letters in boxes her grandparents had stored.

Natasha Soudek does a reasonable job of voicing the audiobook. But it did take me a while to get used to her delivery. I didn’t feel the characters come to life, and this affected my rating. ( )

Very good.

This book is based on letters written by the author's great-grandmother from Germany during the Holocaust; however, it is a fictional account of Klara, Annelise, Ruth, and Clara. Klara is the great-grandmother in Germany and Clara is her great-granddaughter in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The book moves among these women describing their relationships with each other, their loves, and their lives in Germany and Wisconsin. Annelise and Walter with daughter Ruth manage to leave Germany and try to get the paperwork for Annelise parents to follow them. ( )
