'My grandmother isn't well. I'm a nurse. I can look after her and little Mary.'
A guard strode past.
He nodded, compounding the conspiracy of silence.
The old lady held out her arms for the baby. 'Go Miriam. God be with you.'
He had no way to tell her he'd saved her life: no right to tell her to abandon hope.
The woman and Children of Auschwitz and a man who tried to save them. A fictional tale inspired by a terrible truth. A story of courage, cowardice, faith, hope and love. Could you forgive this?

This is a very intense book to read. Some readers are scan readers, of which I include myself for some books. For this particular book however, reading has to be thorough, otherwise you will be lost, as the author takes you back and forth in time, which makes it confusing at times. But overall, an excellent read. Warning to some sensitive readers---there are some VERY graphic descriptions of the cruelty some people suffered.
