The book (which is signed by both Josh and Edith Flagg) is made up of short vignettes that follow the life of Edith from an idyllic childhood, through Nazi terror, and finally to America where she epitomizes the American dream. It is simply and clearly written, spare in prose, but not in feeling. I got the sense it was written the way Edith lives her life, to the point and without a sugar coating. There are stories that are haunting-I applaud the courage it took to put them on paper, and there are stories that are inspiring. It is at turns both terrifying and tender. I zipped through this book in a weekend and was disappointed to get to the end. I finished the book in awe of her bravery.
Despite her age, I'm pretty sure Edith still has another lifetime (and thus another book) in her! It is clear that Josh is "cut from the same cloth" as his grandmother (he was inspired to write the book at the tender age of 14.) All in all a remarkable family and a wonderful, inspiring book.
