    St. Elizabeth's is a home for unwed mothers in the 1960s. Life there is not unpleasant, and for most, it is temporary. Not so for Rose, a beautiful, mysterious woman who comes to the home pregnant but not unwed. She plans to give up her baby because she knows she cannot be the mother it needs.

    But St. Elizabeth's is near a healing spring, and when Rose's time draws near, she cannot go through with her plans, not all of them.

    Story was ok. Slow at parts. It left me with an empty sad feeling. Not much happiness.

    A classic of Holocaust literature, Gerda Weissmann Klein's memoir tells the moving story of a young woman's experience as a slave laborer for the Nazis and her miraculous liberation. This moving memoir was the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning documentary One Survivor Remembers.

    Story

    It was an amazing story. I am always curious as to what motivates people to survive. What differentiates the leaders from the followers. Gerda makes you feel what was driving her. Such a small person physically can be so large.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    Janice says: "Facinating history"
    "Loved it and wanted to know more"
    Overall

    This is a great story about survival and human nature. It was very well written with the perspectives of the crash victims. It is supplemented with the natives actual thoughts from children that were there when it happened. It is an unbelievable rescue. This will make a great movie.
