About this deal

When one begins to falter, the others are there to protect her, to nurse her back to health, or to remind her of their promise.

Venus shoots a backyard superhero movie, Fritz becomes a B movie actress, and children's TV show host Doralis has the grandest of finales. Lewis is released from the accident place without any police investigation at all except for checking his breath alcohol level. Feeling guilty if they survived the concentration camps, feeling guilty if they didn’t suffer as much as the next survivor, feeling guilty for witnessing things they didn’t try to stop, etc.Además la autora es guionista, que no ESCRITORA, y lo que hace es contar la vida tal cual se la contaron, NO SOLO ESTE, SINO LOS TRES LIBROS, por lo que no son historias que describan al detalle las atrocidades que sufrieron (a veces no son necesarias), y no por ello dejan de ser libros duros. Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey, has again adapted a true-life story in her new historical novel. For me this was probably the most emotional of the series so far as the three sisters struggled to uphold the promise they made to their father as little children to always stay together. I’m so pleased I was able to read about the Mellar sisters and I think there’d be a lot that you’d take away from it too – it is an amazing story that deserves to read.

Thank you to the wonderful team at Echo Publishing for an early copy of the book to read and review. As with most historical fiction set in this time period, it is difficult to read about the horrible treatment that Jews faced and the incredible resiliency of the survivors. For the rest, I struggled to focus on their identities, even when it came to discerning between the male characters. A fierce love between three sisters who would do anything for each other, who wanted to be with each other at any cost. I will admit that I guessed the big twist at the end pretty early on, which I think took away some of my enjoyment.

The second, Cilka’s Journey, finished with a woman being judged by her Soviet rescuers and sentenced to work in a Soviet labor camp.

When the three sisters made their way back to their childhood home they were disillusioned and disgusted to find someone else living in their home.La historia comienza cuando su padre, aun siendo unas niñas, les hace prometer que pase lo que pase van a permanecer juntas. Even the minor characters are pulled into the bigger stories and I think this led to a rather cluttered narrative. I would save my small birthday and holiday gifts of money, and purchase presents for her so that I could see her beautiful smile light up her eyes. Based on a true story, this is the third book in the Tattooist of Auschwitz series by Heather Morris. This is a difficult and overwhelming book to review, it was a remarkably enjoyable read but that doesn’t sound right considering the theme of the story.

Magda, only 17, stays with her mother and grandfather, hiding out in a neighbour’s attic or in the forest when the Nazi militia come to round up friends, neighbours and family. It takes more than a new setting though to get through the survivor’s guilt that many have and each cope with it differently. Three Sisters is a story about the very worst in humanity but it’s also a story of bravery, hope and love. Once Cibi, Magda and Livia are together again, they draw hope from the promise they made to their father and vow to each other that they will survive. As the seventh play in Theatre Communication Group's Classic Russian Drama Series, playwright Richard Nelson and translators of Russian literature Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky continue their collaboration with a masterful new translation of Chekhov’s exploration of yearning and disillusionment.I couldn’t tell if the author forgot what had just happened before or if it was supposed to be purposeful for a certain reason that I couldn’t figure out. Their incredible survival, their arrival to and settlement in Israel, and their thriving ‘tribe’, are all evidence of their victory. In 1942, as teenagers, they left their home (a little family background at the start, along with the basic conditions and circumstances of the times)…. Lewis Stone can't face the work Christmas party, but he's one of the bosses, he has to put in an appearance.
