    Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

    Every day Charles Schine rides the 8:43 into New York City to do the job he has done for over a decade...until the day he is late for his regular train, and sits down across from the woman of his dreams. He is about to discover that once you leave the straight and narrow, getting back on track is the most perilous journey of all. And for Charles, that journey - of lies, terror, and deception - has just begun.

    I don't understand the "buzz" about this book that is touted on the website review. The initial premise is interesting, but once the dilemma is set up, the hero's choices are increasingly absurd and frankly, unbelievable! A frustrating and unsatisfying read.

    National Book Award winning author Sherwin Nuland introduces his father, a Russian immigrant who dreamed of a better life in America but found the opposite. In this memoir, we see what it cost Nuland to admit the inextricable ties between father and son and to accept the burden of his father's legacy.

    Overall

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. "Riveting" is an overused word but it describes this text. The author shares with us a stark, honest exploration of his family's history, dynamics and legacy of his parents' immigrant experience. His prose is clear and engaging, and the story he tells spares no one--least of all himself. This book helps me understand the tremendous price paid by this family of first and second generation immigrants in search of the American dream. And yet, in the end, it's a story of redemption and forgiveness and hope. A brave and healing tale.
