Reviews
In Victoria Shorr's searing novel, horror encompasses the characters in ways unknown to others less afflicted as they struggle to understand all that has been sacrificed and lost, at last finding solace in their uncompromising refusal to allow the crimes of the past to diminish and defeat them.--Susanna Moore, author of Miss Aluminum
Victoria Shorr's poignant novel, The Plum Trees, is less fiction than a reckoning with the past. Shorr tells a story of the evils that confronted millions of wartime Jews through the prism of one family's desperate attempt to survive and the narrator's equally desperate effort to find them decades later.--Steven J. Ross, author of Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America
You'll have trouble putting it down at all, much less slamming it shut. Written with urgency, elegance, and grace.-- "Kirkus"
Immersive ... This moving account makes clear the need to remember the horrors of war.-- "Publishers Weekly"
