The story is told from two points of view, a young Jewish girl who was arrested with her family and a middle aged journalist writing a story about roundup. They are linked through tragic events and as Sarah digs deeper, she finds herself more and more emotionally connected to the girl. It's a heartbreaking story that has stuck with me every since I finished it. It was so compelling, I read the bulk of it in one sitting and finished it in two days. Be prepared for some tears. I'm not normally a crier when it comes to books, but this one made me tear up a couple times.
I read this books as part of Semi-Charmed Winter Book Challenge. It falls under the category of a book I've had at home but haven't gotten around to reading. Yay 5 points!
