    In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lost Wife to be better than the print version?

    YES! Perhaps because it made everything appear so REAL!
    The readers pronunciations were true to life and so well done, one felt transported into the time period being described.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Wife to and why?

    Diary of Ann Frank. Hope endures in the human heart!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the husband grabs his wife's hand and searches for the infamous Nazi numbers tattooed on her arm... to make certain it really was her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did driving a long distance over a day or two.. Almost could'nt wait after our few rest stops to continue listening!


    Any additional comments?

    What a thoroughly entrancing book!! It was all too real!!! I felt transported into the lush rich pictures audibly painted, and then I felt at once the hopes dashed, and the hopelessness, the plodding, unyielding agony of the Concentration Camp!! What a treat to have a man read the husband's part, and then to hear a woman read the wife's part. Excellent readers! Fantastic how their voices, especially the male reader audibly aged as the years went on. The accents and pronunciation of all the exotic far away places that ordinarily I might have butchered while attempting to read them out to myself, were exquisitely pronounced by the readers, which added to the color of the literature. Great work!
