Title: The Woman with the Blue Star
: Pam Jenoff
Review: This is a moving and courageous tale about World War II Poland. The story begins in the Krakow Ghetto, where you meet Sadie and her family, on the other side you meet Ella her step mother who is “friendly” to the Nazis. Sadie and others end up escaping to the sewer system and living there, barely holding on. Ella helps when she can and the girls develop a close friendship, like kindred spirits . This is a touching tale of friendship, of family and what you might do to stay alive. Loved it, and it makes you think of the times we are in now as well.
