I picked up this book on a whim at a used book store, and I'm so glad I did. It seamlessly blends science and romance with a heavy dose of wry humor. The hero of the story is a dwarf — but this is not a fantasy novel. It's literary, intelligent, moving, and funny. Plus, the story opens in the Czech Republic — how could I resist it?
The Girl in the Green Sweater: A Life in Holocaust's Shadow
I'd just finished reading Alan Furst's wonderful spy thriller Dark Star, which tells the story of Poland during the early days of WWII. Then my pal Stef casually handed me a copy of this book and said, "You like WWII stuff. Here." I'm so glad she did. This book is a great companion piece to Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank and was the perfect follow up to Dark Star. In telling her story of living 14 months in a sewer to escape the wrath of the Nazis during their occupation of western Poland, the author proves that humanity, love, and optimism can defeat evil.
