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.
