Wow, do I have a great book for you today!
If you loved Sarah’s Key, you will LOVE The Lost Wife! I started reading this book over the holidays and just flipped the last page yesterday. I loved every single word. It’s the beautiful love story of Lenka and Josef, spanning from pre-WW2 to present day—-I couldn’t put it down! Reading of Lenka’s time spent at a Jewish work camp, and later at Auschwitz, made me cry. I was so wrapped up in the characters that I started to lose sense of reality. Or maybe that was just all the cold medicine I was taking at the time.
You guys need to read this…like, immediately, and start off 2012 with great historical fiction. I’m working to make a place on the blog where you can find all my book reviews together—I’ll let you know when it’s done!
Until then, happy reading!
