Praise for Good-bye Marianne

"In this very moving and beautifully written story readers will discover what it was like to be a Jewish child in Nazi Germany. They will come to appreciate how terrifying it was to live in such a place at such a dark time, and to understand how miserable it was for families to be broken apart the way they were." - Looking Glass Review

Praise for Remember Me

"In this poignant and sometimes heartbreaking story, the author paints a wonderful portrait in words of a young girl whose whole life has been turned upside down. Readers will see what it must have been life to be taken away from one's family and to be forced to live with people who did not and could not understand what it was like to be a German Jewish child." - from an online review at
