"Compelling and fully realized characters grapple with unimaginable losses while also navigating the immigrant experience." ~Joy Wolfe Ensor, Co-editor, The Ones Who Remember: Second-Generation Voices of the Holocaust
One Person's Loss by Ann S. Epstein
Meanwhile, the couple agonizes over the fate of the families they left behind in Hitler’s Europe. Can Petra’s parents bribe officials and secure safe passage to the United States? What of Erich’s parents and four siblings, especially his hotheaded brother who joined the resistance?
One Person’s Loss explores whether marriage, even grounded in love, can survive personal clashes and the traumas of the Holocaust.
