Thanks to Bookish first for this book!
Memoir about the author's grandmothe'sr escape from Germany to America told to him when she was 98 years old!
Interesting story of survival and determination and one woman's will to live. She traveled from Germany to Italy and then when WWII became much worse for Jews, she traveled to America via Cuba. Knowing her children were already in America gave her more determination for her and her husband to get to America.
This is one of the few stories about the effect WWII and Hitler's cruelty had on women that I've read. I understand that this is a sequel to "A Smile in One Eye: a Tear in the Other." I definitely want to read the first book and hope Ralph Webster writes more books.
