Regina Kessler does survive and eventually emigrates to New York to face new challenges. I finished this book wishing I could have known her, a woman of such courage and determination, someone who defied murderers, worked very hard to protect her family, did not given in to grief, and overcame language barriers and sexism to follow her dream of becoming a doctor.
Most moving of all is to realize who wrote it and why.
