I just finished up the audio book, The Lost Wife byAlyson Richman. Let’s me just tell you, it’s wonderful.
This one was recommended to my by a blog readers and I can’t thank you enough. I got my copy through Audible and have been only listening to it while I drive in the car. Right now I have an hour commute on Monday nights teaching in Independence. This book has kept the drive manageable. The book got so good that I started listening to it home too.
Again this is a WWII Holocaust novel telling the story of two young people in love trying to escape the atrocities happening around them as they go from well to do Jews to victims of crime against humanity. I’ve read lots of Holocaust books and this one ranks up in my favorites.
Here’s what Amazon had to say, “In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there’s an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers…
Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit- and the strength of memory.”
When writing this review I found that the author has several other books. I will be checking into reading more as this was wonderful.
Amazon readers say 4.6 stars….I would go higher…it was that good!
