Editorial Reviews

Review

I couldn't put this book down. I laughed and cried and had a great time.
Alice is such a brave character that I really admired her. Although her life had so many ups and downs, she always overcame the issues and developed her self-assurance a bit more. This book remained part of my thoughts many days after I finished reading it. I really enjoyed it. 
Nilli Zur

This book brings a whole new understanding to the unique personal experience of a little girl who had no idea that she was a Holocaust survivor. It is a personal autobiography written with a pure, beautiful, and raw truth that has touched my heart on many levels. The author was able to just tell the story as it unfolded without adding historical or philosophical interpretations. Reading it was a gift
Miya Nadri

An inspiring true story about a little girl who was born in the wrong time and place (Poland just before World War II) and had to overcome so many obstacles on her way to security, love, and success.It is told in first person and describes to perfection a full spectrum of emotions. Through Alice's personal history - childhood in Poland in the Holocaust, growing up In Brazil, and adulthood in Israel - one can experience the daily life of this important period of history, her struggles to grow up, the importance of family (or absence thereof), and her ability to make the best of the cards dealt to her by her destiny.
The book is inspiring, interesting, and moving. I couldn't leave it... highly recommended! 
Sigal Davidow Motola 

I like reading history romances, and this one was especially beautiful... It took me mentally to another period of time and I deeply sympathized with Alice's choices. 
Shelly R.

The paucity of sensationalist descriptions powerfully highlights the emotional wounding inflicted by war and mankind's inhumanity. And yet we are left with a sense of hope, that love and sense of family can prevail, that in a supportive environment, talent can flourish. A worthwhile read. 
Mrs. Marion Vaughan

From the Author

I wanted to embark on a long journey into me.To take the hand of the lonely kid I was then, and go with her through all the incidents and situations of her growing up. To meet all the people who had been so important to me then, people who loved me and those who hurt me.To scrutinize all that happened from a different perspective, from the perspective of the person I have become.
Above all I wanted to free myself from the torments buried deep inside me that had the power to affect me at times when I was most vulnerable.
A quotation from Nietzsche that most aptly describes my feelings: "What is the mark of accomplishing freedom? Not to blush at yourself anymore."
