Review by: Loretta Medaglia on March 11, 2012 :
Beautifully written. I especially enjoyed the Yiddish translations throughout. We've all got our demons to struggle with. Dale and Rowena, having been given far more than their share, seem both to have risen high above them, despite the severity.
I can count the books I've read in one sitting, on one finger. This would be it. I'm reading it again.
Thank you Dale and Rowena for you courage, strength and generosity in sharing your story.
