    It sounds like a sad book. Although the title makes it seem like it would be inspiring.

    I read and share holocaust survivor stories and this is one on my list to read.

  3. Mae F. (artemis16) says:

    This seems like a really interesting story.

  4. John I. says:

    Hillenbrand’s book about Seabiscuit was excellent. Great history and great storytelling. She seems like she really dd her homework about the life of a jockey and the career of a racehorse. If the new one is half as good I will enjoy it. I really like WWII stuff, anyway.
