Reviews

"Memoirist and award-winning children's author Rosner challenges the Holocaust with a touch of magic (the yellow bird appears throughout), clarifying a dangerous time and place even as she offers a vibrant, affecting portrait of the mother-daughter relationship."
--Library Journal (starred review)

"A beautiful book in so many ways. Like Shira's imaginary bird, Jennifer Rosner's prose is lilting and musical, yet her tale of war's grave personal reality is gripping, heartrending, and so very real."
--Lisa Wingate, author of Before We Were Yours and Before and After

"Music and love course through this beautiful novel, twin rivers of wonder. Jennifer Rosner has written a book that will break your heart, and then put it back together again, a little larger than before."
--Alex George, author of A Good American

"Room meets Schindler's List in The Yellow Bird Sings, a beautifully written tale of mothers and daughters, war and love, the music of the living and the silence of the dead."
--Kate Quinn, author of The Huntress and The Alice Network

"A captivating novel of the power of music, the human voice, and what we sacrifice in order to survive extraordinary circumstances. Absolutely riveting."
--Ramona Ausubel, author of Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty and No One Is Here Except All of Us

"A brilliant and transporting novel."
--Margot Livesey, author of Mercury and The Flight of Gemma Hardy

"An extraordinarily beautiful and moving novel of the human heart. It is a rich and poignant story of the enduring power of love and hope in the face of peril."
--David Gillham, author of City of Women
