THE LOST WIFE, a book review.

THE LOST WIFE explores the ravishes of WWII on a tragically personal level. A socially privileged, newly wed couple living in Prague, is torn apart by the German invasion and family loyalty. 

The author, Alyson Richman, first ensnares the reader by sharing the couples' chance meeting, 60 years after their separation, at the wedding of their grandchildren. The novel continues as the grandparents alternately recount their individual experiences during their chasm of separation 

The horrors of WWII are no less intense, but this unique presentation higlights the life and death impacts of commitment.  

I always enjoy reading books that make me question my values. This book made me realize the long term effects of personal decisions.

That looks like a good book. I will definitely try it. I just finished reading "Saving CeCe Hunnicut", by Beth Hoffman. It starts out sad when CeCe lives in Ohio with her mother who's a mad woman. The Mom is the town's crazy person who ended up getting run over by a dairy queen truck. CeCe's father abandoned the family and dumped CeCe on the mother's aunt in GA. It's a nice chick book about the different relationships with the women CeCe encounters after her mother dies.
