Fascinating account of (fictional) ordinary lives during WWII. Mostly centered around Jewish women's lives, covers the range from a resistance fighter in France trying to find her way through the violence to a preteen in New York facing anti-semitism and abuse but too young to understand the causes. Each character is deeply individual with no sterotypes, and has unexpected strengths and weaknesses.
