A wonderful book - I had to read it twice! Gives great and well written insight into a family and the agony of depression
I read Mr.Frankel's book when I was 15 and it left me crying all night for on one hand I wanted MY suffering to cease and get sound sleep. Something prevented me from putting it down and rolling over to sleep as one might a casual novel. There was a deep and abiding innate sense that I was bearing witness to the genuine nature of Evil and to put the book down would be disrespectful to all the death,depravity and human suffering that IS NOT POSSIBLE to quantify with the English Language, as it, like most languages, is not up to the task to properly illuminate the banality Mr.Frankel witnessed. Grace is USUALLY unmerited and undeserved, this Author has it in spades. "God" Bless these United States now and Always. Sincerely, John P Quinn Wahington, Dc 20010
This is one of the books I categorize as life changing and inspirational. This book reminds us of the courage, resilience, and endurance to go through life tragedy and triumph in life. It was a horrible time in history and what Victor went through was just indescribable and horrific. Yet, he could rise up, transform, and provide an example of someone who went through such a horrible times and yet win in life. I am very grateful for him sharing and being such a great example for generations ahead.
