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.
