I am recommending that you read Alice Hoffman's latest novel, The World That We Knew. It's an amazing read filled with Alice's magical realism that will keep you on the edge of your seat, will fill your eyes with tears, and will often make your heart ache. It takes place during the second World War, and follows three women who use love and courage to get through the war. Alice weaves into her story old Jewish folk tales, the supernatural, and the ugliness of evil, yet her message is always clear: love will find a way. And you should find your way to reading this extraordinary book, The World That We Knew.
