On 10/24 Martha Artyomenko wrote: While this story breaks a lot of the rules of what a successful book must have, it truly is an incredible story based on truth, to give us insight into the experiences of people inside the camps. It is successful in its own right because of that! I found it especially heart-wrenching as you see so clearly ... Heartbreaking history...
