This story was wonderfully written. Ozick wrote with such a way that when the mother suffers the reader suffers. The mother's love and sacrifice for her baby is beautiful and the type of love that is exemplary and memorable. One will not easily forget this story.

I'm not sure what I think about this one. The writing is very succinct and reads like poetry. For a 69 page book it sure is intense. Very gritty and raw.
