Description

Añado, que la autora fue elegida por las hermanas y su familia para escribir esta historia, después de que algunos familiares leyeran el tatuador de Auschwitz, todo esta explicado en las notas finales de la autora. As this story begins, it is June of 1929 and the setting is Vranov nad Topl’ou in Slovakia where three sisters, Cibi, Magda and Livi are sitting in their backyard with their father. As with most historical fiction set in this time period, it is difficult to read about the horrible treatment that Jews faced and the incredible resiliency of the survivors. Hell had escaped its moorings and risen to earth in the shape of Auschwitz and Birkenau and all the other camps, .

Como siempre que leo algo de esto, ya sean mejores o peores, son historias reales, son historias que tienen que conocerse, y sin son reales pocas pegas se les puede poner.Not the place one wants to meet a loved one, but still, they were happy at least to be there for each other. I won't go into more details as I don't want to risk giving anything away but Owen really has done an amazing job constructing an addictive and explosive psychological thriller with fantastic and varied characters that you just won't be able to put down! For those that have read the previous two books, there are brief appearances of Lale, Gita, and Cilka.

It took me halfway through the book to finally figure out that Alex’s was the only perspective written in first person.

Maybe it was because my parents were never particularly interested in sharing, or because nobody else in my immediate surroundings ever voluntarily shared their past, I didn’t feel like something was amiss. As children, the sisters made a promise to their sick father and to each other before he died to always be there for one another, no matter what!

This is a book about grief, victims, lies and secrets that move around on the shifting sands of fate.Includes rape for no reason, and the plot twist at the end would’ve been great had I not guessed it very early on.

I love giving out 5 stars to most books I read so it really pains me to give a book 1 star… but this book just wasn’t for me. Most of us have heard about stories of the holocaust and the horrific cruelty dealt to the people imprisoned at camps like Auschwitz - Birkenau, this story takes place before, during and after the holocaust. Having said all that, I do appreciate what Morris tried to do here, which was to relay the sisters’ courage and resilience in surviving the camps and rising above the tragedies they experienced to ultimately live full and flourishing lives. And as hard it is to read of the suffering, it is also uplifting to learn of life after the war filled with children and grandchildren. Cibi and Livi were extremely fortunate to find themselves with two different kapos who were sympathetic to them and got them easier jobs in the camp.I have a sister…no, my parents have another daughter…so I don’t know how it feels to give a crap about a sibling, so this book was kind of delicious as they go through a night from hell. The descriptions, the recounting of events and the horrors of the death camps made this an emotional journey and I felt their despair and heartache.
