    In 1939, the Germans invaded the town of Lodz, Poland, and moved the Jewish population into a small part of the city called a ghetto. As the war progressed, 270,000 people were forced to settle in the ghetto under impossible conditions. At the end of the war, there were about 800 survivors. Of those who survived, only twelve were children. This is the story of one of the twelve.

    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    She made it feel as if you were there.You could truly feel all that the author's Aunt went through on an emotional level.. The narration for this was excellent


    Any additional comments?

    I love reading books that have the story of someone's real life experiences, brought to reader's in a way that makes us feel as if we share in their journey with them. I found myself anxious,heartbroken, and going through the same emotions that this young survivor felt. Are there miracles? Yes. Did they receive an answer to prayers? I truly believe so and I have no doubt that God knew that through a child, many would be saved and healed of there own wounds through her continued work in life. It is back to the thought that trials in life can either tear you down,or polish you to a refined brilliance. I believe this woman shines brightly for all those she represents.

    For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates…. Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Loki's Daughters the most enjoyable?

    The more I read this novel, the more it seemed like a Viking/Celt version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, with VERY descriptive sex scenes. I liked the basis of the story and found it entertaining, but there were times of repetition and as I mentioned before, the sexual scenes tended to go on to an extent that I did not feel necessary; once was enough..we get it. Sarah Coomes however, was thoroughly entertainin to listen to


    What does Sarah Coomes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a fantastic storyteller and gives a personality to each character with much enthusiasm.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was not expecting the highly descriptive and for me, unnecessary sex scenes.
