Reviews

"Fascinating . . . A tragic saga, but at the same time it often reads like a thriller filled with acts of extraordinary courage, descriptions of dangerous journeys and a series of secret identities."--Chicago Tribune

oignant . . . affecting . . . part detective story, part literary memoir, part imagined past."--The New York Times Book Review

"Riveting . . . painfully authentic . . . a poignant memoir, a labor of love for the parents she never really knew."--The Boston Globe

"Mesmerizing . . . Fremont has accomplished something that seems close to impossible. She has made a fresh and worthy contribution to the vast literature of the Holocaust."--The Washington Post Book World

"A story of safe but costly passage from one identity to another that takes us from Europe to America via World War II . . . [Fremont] has the intelligence and imagination to question her own motives. This allows her to question the memoir form, even as she deploys it so beautifully."--The New York Times

"An extraordinary tale . . . eloquently written. . . . Its complex narrative weaves back and forth between past and present, the tale and its discovery."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
