Very few people can say they were born inside a concentration camp during the Holocaust. Disease, starvation, and much worse, prevented most prisoners from surviving. For infants, it was nearly impossible.
I became an anomaly. I shouldn’t be alive.
As a child, I didn’t know my life was different from that of others. I had nothing to compare it to, and I had no insight about the day I was born … until the moment I overheard the truth.
In a split second, I became a stranger to my reflection, my name, and my reason for being. I was not Annie anymore, and the people raising me were not my parents. Even the blue sky I cherished became an unfamiliar sight.
I felt utterly alone in a foreign world, but that changed when I met another person who was lost, like me. Fisher offered his hand to hold and began to prove his theory of, “When two missing people find one another, they can consider themselves found.”
Fisher enlightened me, and through him, I gained a deeper understanding of life. Now, I know there are two sides of the beautiful, blue sky. I’m on one side, and my lost loved ones are on the other, but at the end of it all, we’ll be together again under the one and only sky.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
As “lucky” as Annie was to have escaped, after she began to piece together what had happened to her, she went through her entire life not feeling like she fit in anywhere. As a mother, I understand why Amelia made the choice that she did. And it eased my heart to know that Annie and Fisher, another lost child of the Holocaust, found each other and created a life together.
This book is full of so many intense moments as Annie struggles to find lost pieces of her past and reconcile that with what she knows of her present. I made the mistake of reading a good chunk of this book while at my desk during my lunchbreak, and it was hard to hold back the tears welling in my eyes.
This story, like Last Words before it, shows how a glimmer of hope and peace came out of one of history’s most horrific events. How Annie and Fisher found their blue sky. Knowing that the tale was inspired by the author’s own ancestors gave this story more depth in my eyes than just a work of fiction. And the cover of this story is perfect. At first, I just thought it was a pretty cover. But having finished the book, it gives me chills to know what the pages hold underneath that buttterfly and blue sky. Brava, Shari. Brava.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
