Born in war-torn Romania shortly after WWII, the author fled to Israel along with her family, and then they abruptly moved to Canada. She moved to the US at 19, another uprooting in her young life. When she meets the love of her life at a young age, she learns that his family’s history of displacement and survival during the Holocaust parallels her own. As she matures, has children, and her ambitions grow, the author finds an inner strength. Even a shocking family secret learned late in life that might have shattered another person’s worldview, only strengthens her resolve to remain true to herself. Her extraordinary life of dealing with losses and secrets, and finding love, is the subject of this moving memoir.
