Review: Those Who Save Us

THOSE WHO SAVE US, by Jenna Blum. Based in Germany- a novel about a German mother who does the unthinkable to save her daughter.and the daughter's quest 50 years later to find out exactly what her mother did.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. A friendship between a wealthily boy and the son of his father's servant. Moving but would be even more difficult to read now than it was several years ago (when I read it), given that the book is set in Afganistan.
