Reviews

"Blum plumbs the depths of loss and love in this exquisite page-turner."--People
"(Blum) takes on the difficult task of rendering generational trauma visible, and does it with such humor and empathy, you can't help but be swept along for the ride."--Village Voice
"Jenna Blum shines a powerful light on how the past swings back and how we must face it. The Lost Family is an extraordinary read, the kind of book that makes you sob and smile, the kind that gives you hope.... It is compassionate, masterful and disturbingly contemporary."
--Tatiana de Rosnay, bestselling author of Sarah's Key
"I was spellbound from the start of The Lost Family. The writing is so smart and empathetic.... This is a dazzling novel of great compassion, honestly reckoning with the time-and-place-spanning ripple effect of great pain as well as love."--Laura Moriarty, New York Times best-selling author of The Chaperone
"Deftly executed, deeply moving, and full of heart, Jenna Blum's The Lost Family is an evocative look at the legacy of war and how it impacts one memorable family."--Jami Attenberg, bestselling author of The Middlesteins
"An unsentimental, richly detailed study of loss and its legacy."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Blum avoids the sap of happy endings and easy resolutions in this perfect encapsulation of the changing times and turbulence of mid- and late-20th-century America."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This exquisitely crafted and compassionate novel offers a lesson in honesty, regardless of how difficult the truth may be. It will offer plenty of discussion for book groups."--Library Journal (starred review)
"In...this gripping novel, Blum...displays her keen eye for character...Each unforgettable character in this deeply moving novel brings new meaning to the familiar phrase "never forget." Elie Wiesel's A Mad Desire to Dance (2009) and Michael Chabon's Moonglow (2016) also share.. a sense of hope in the face of tragic loss."--Booklist (starred review)
"This is an excellent character study of how the tragedy of the Holocaust lives on, even to this day. The damage done by the Nazis was not only death and destruction of the Jewish people of the time, but an indelible stain on the lives of all who have lived afterwards, a stain on the world so deep that the true impact of the tragedy may never be known. Blum has created a beautiful novel exploring the intertwining of both love and loss."--Jewish News
