Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Biography and Memoir, 2013

Told with the same old-fashioned narrative power as the novels of Herman Wouk, The Seamstress is the true story of Seren (Sara) Tuvel Bernstein and her survival during wartime. This powerful eyewitness account of survival, told with power and grace, will stay with listeners for years to come.

What the Critics Say

"There are many recent accounts of Holocaust victims, but this work stands alone as a testimony to personal strength and an independent spirit." (Library Journal)

    Story
    "Loved it."

    With so many books written on the subject, it is nice to actually read one that has some pre-World War II background to it. While historically significant it is also a great human story well worth the read

    "Ten stars aren't enough"

    This has to be the best written and narrated book I have read in a long time, maybe all time. The author and narrator make it feel as if you were there. Phenomenal.

    Story
    "Minor Flaws"

    This story is important and told with a surprisingly straightforward honesty. The narrator was fine though the east European accent was a bit flawed - there seemed to be hint of Irish brogue that was a little distracting.

    The afterword was not the strongest part of the book. The perceptions and experiences of the children of Holocaust survivors is interesting and perhaps important. It might even be worth a sequel. Co-opting Sara's story was not the place for Sara's daughter to talk about herself

    "Great story of optimistic tenacity"

    I had no expectations for this book. I usually stick to books people have recommended. It was on a list of Buy two get one free. I was not disappointed!

    I loved the narration, the author and of course Sara. Life dealt her a pretty tough hand and through it all she cared for and loved others, worked hard no matter what, made the best decisions she could at any given moment, stood up for what she knew was right, found happiness as often as possible and in the end had no regrets. We could all learn a few things from her and her life. Amazing!
