I just finished this book and it gets a VERY GOOD rating.  If you want to understand the war in Ukraine and the Nazi theme behind it, this is an excellent explanation in the shape of historical fiction.  Based upon a true story, the author has followed the real storyline, but filled in the gaps.  The remarkable endurance of man, the ability to face and live through evil, man's struggle against his fellow man, and especially the powerful pull of family and love ~ this is a remarkable story of one family who survived despite the huge odds against them.  Perhaps the best part of the story is the spiritual awakening of the story's hero.  I will not spoil it for you--it is a GREAT READ!

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
