It seems to be a trend stories with alternating narratives of the past and present I know that for some this mechanism has gotten tiresome but I happen to really enjoy the blending of the past and present the connecting of stories and characters from different times The place and the circumstances are almost always different and if this is done well there is something that grabs me as the stories are brought together Sarah McCoy has done just that in this moving novel set in El Paso Texas in 2007 and WW II Nazi GermanyI almost always like the past story than the present and this was the case here with the moving story of Elsie and her family during WW II in Garmish Germany The perspective of how the war impacted the Germans even Nazi supporters is an interesting one as well as heart breaking as you see what happens to Elsie s sister Hazel and her family The historic part of the story unfolds in several ways letters between Elsie and her sister Hazel third person narrative and in what Elsie tells Reba The story does focus on the plight of the Jews as well as we see the courage and humanity of a teenage Elsie attempt to save a young Jewish boy bringing great risk for her familyI was also touched by Reba s story taking place in 2007 El Paso Texas She has had a less than happy family life growing up with a father who has suffered the emotional and mental conseuences of the Vietnam War and a mother and sister who seem to be in denial over the problem Reba herself seems to be in denial about her true feelings for her fianc Riki or at least unsure of what she really wants She is a writer looking for that feel good Christmas story when she meets Elsie and her daughter Jane and the story of Elsie the baker s daughter comes to lifeWhile there is the death sadness hunger the toll on Elsie s family the sadness in Reba s family and the timely inclusion of the illegal immigrant issue there are moments that shine reflecting family love friendship and caring people I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it Che cos'è un dispositivo? for her Paranoia first sip of champagne as she is His Reluctant Lover The Alfieri Saga #3 for her Horror Noire Blacks in American Horror Films from the 1890s to Present first kiss She and her Buried Alive family have been protected Bondi Beach Boys Boys of Summer #1 from the worst of the terror and desperation overtaking her country by a high ranking Nazi who wishes to marry her So when an escaped Jewish boy arrives on Elsie’s doorstep in the dead of night on Christmas Eve Elsie understands that opening the door would put all she loves in dangerSixty years later in El Paso Texas.
