ACROSS TIME by Linda Kay Silva is the second book I’ve run across this week where I felt inadequate as a reviewer. What both books had in common were historical facts and details - lots of details. Neither...
Linda gives an overview of the book:
Tory's Tuesday is set in Bialystok, Poland. the year is 1939. The Nazis are rounding up Polish Jews in ghettos all over the country, and Marissa and Elsa are no exception.
After being crammed into cattle cars and shipped south to Auschwitz concentration camp, Marissa and Elsa become separated. Marissa, a seamstress by trade, is put to work in one of the large textile warehouses to make clothes and gloves for the soldiers. Elsa is forced into the mainstream population, where death lurks menacingly around every corner.
Through all of the atrocities and horrors both women must face, their love for each other never wavers. While in the concentration camp, they meet a number of other courageous women who help them in their fight to both survive and reunite.
This story will embed itself deep within you and make you feel and understand the pain and anguish women suffered at the hands of the maniacal Nazis. You will applaud the strength and determination of these women, as well as hurt for them when they lose those close to them. And when you finish the final page and close the book, you will believe that as long as there is love, anything is possible.
