Part of Mariette's story rings familiar as I had heard similar encounters from my European family members. But, Mariette puts a voice to her stories that I've never experienced before. She doesn't shy away from the difficult and emotional truths that she encountered. Where others had glossed over details, Mariette jumps in with exquisite descriptions. I marveled at her choice of words over and over. They matched each mood and situation so beautifully. This is the mark of a truly gifted writer.
Thank you, Mariette, for reaching deep into your heart to bring us your story. I am sure that wasn't always easy, but I am so very grateful that you decided to share it.
Mindele's Journey is a good read and held my interest throughout. I partook in her experiences, being privileged to meet her protectors, Les Tantes, and taste their wonderful cuisine. Growing up in Brooklyn in the 50s is I something I did share with Mariette. We went to the same high school. But never did I imagine that a story like this accompanied the cheerful, hip teenager I knew. The drama of her memoir is not confined to the period before she came to America. But Mindele always was a fighter and a survivor. I thoroughly recommend this book to all who enjoy coming of age books - this one took place in perilous settings, both without and within.
your emotions are tested and heart felt. She leaves no page of her life unturned and shares her
joys and sorrows. She often questions why she survived the holocaust and her mother and siblings
did not. As she looks to answer why, her purpose unravels. It is her journey to wholeness I
found myself on a parallel journey to understand my past and discover my mission now.
Her story makes me believe surely an angel must have been watching over her , such as the moment when she just happens to be by her father's side in the attic when the Nazis raid her family's home and narrowly escapes by rooftop.
This story also highlights how even during dark times of great evil, there are still people of great good and abundant love.
