Jennifer Rosner, author of The Yellow Bird Sings, has followed up that acclaimed work of historical fiction with another novel about children whose lives were disrupted by the Holocaust. In this new work, she draws on her research to write about Jewish children who were given to Christians for safekeeping, and who after the war are claimed by both their caretakers and Jewish activists wanting to bring them to Israel. The examples are heart-wrenching, and even as adults the children wonder who they really are and where home is.
