An Amazing Story from the darkest time of World War 2. How often can you read a story of a miracle that saves a whole family from the clutches of death. A story that can bring hope to any person at anytime! A Must read for every person. From start to finish you will the pain, fear, love, and hope that Doris and her family went through. A true story in the Darkest Day.

As was the case with other reviewers, I learned about this book when I met Doris Martin. She and her husband were visiting the park where I work and went on my tour. I was talking about the hardships endured by the early settlers of Jamestown and their struggle for survival. Well, after my tour, the Martins and I conversed and I got to hear an amazing tale of personal survival.

I purchased _Kiss Every Step_, but, for months, did not read it. I think it's because I was reluctant to have bad things happen to someone I liked so much, even though those bad things happened decades before.

Well, I have read the book and I am so glad that I did so! Doris and her family survived frightening and abominable experiences, but they also realized that, if they were going to overcome the brutality and privations, they were going to have to cultivate their natural resourcefulness, plan ahead for problems as much as possible and be ever alert for situations which could be turned to their advantage. They were courageous, clever and undaunted!

My library includes Ann Frank's diary and Viktor Frankl's _Man's Search for Meaning_. Mrs. Martin's book is right up there with these two classics in providing a first-hand account of life during the Nazi Holocaust. I am honoured to have met Mrs. Martin, and I am so glad I read her book.

I met the most amazing lady today. very passionate and very articulate about her most amazing story. I met Doris Martin in a coffee shop in northeast cambodia where she told me her story. i haven't read her book yet, but can't wait to get my hands on it. I recommend it based on the conversation i had with her. I was moved to see her compassion for the hurting hearts here in cambodia and how their loses resembled each other. I will read it soon and bring further comment later. she's the real deal!

This is an amazing account of the Holocaust. Because of the horror of the story, it is sometimes difficult to read.

Reveals the fascinating details behind the survival of a 7-member Polish Jewish family, a miracle in and of itself, from the Nazi Holocaust, an event almost unparalleled in that era. Highly recommended for those interested in a real story of 'being there' in a age of obscene cruelty.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read many Holocaust survival stories, all of which are compelling. Kiss Every Step, however, is unique if only because all seven members of the Szpringer family of Bendzin, Poland survived. Having this knowledge while reading the book, helped to relieve some of the sadness that usually accompanies these reads. Of particular interest to me, is that despite the frequent statements of luck or fortune being on their side, and there are frequent examples of this as they repeatedly narrowly escaped the Nazis, there is not a big presence of "God". One thing that always amazes me in Holocaust survival accounts is the ongoing faith that people maintain, even in the face of terrible pain, suffering and what might be called "bad luck." Despite the Szpringers having a great amount of "good luck," it impressed me that the credit wasn't repeatedly given to "God". Whether or not this has to do with what I felt was a unique tone - somehow more positive, lighter, and open at the same time - than usual, I don't know. But the book was a joy to read, despite the inherent horrificness of the subject matter.

An amazing story of a family's constant struggle, during WWII, to escape the unbelievably efficient, ruthless and evil Nazis. It is a very worthwhile read for addicts, like me, of Holocaust survival stories.
