    " An extraordinary little book about the power of love in the face of unimaginable evil. Writing like this is the reason that I read. "

    " The two short stories in this book complement each other nicely and, told in prose filled to the brim with emotion, are a moving testament to the destructive power of the Holocaust. "

    " This book, within the first ten pages, manages to accomplish what other authors often fail to achieve in three to four hundred. Cynthia Ozick captures the reader immediately with her intimate tone as she lovingly speaks of the infant -- swaddled in a shawl -- that she carries while walking with a companion down a seemingly endless road. A road leading to a concentration camp. The book refrains from going into detail of the Holocaust, its Soldiers and descriptions of horrid treatment endured by millions and instead, focuses on this small band of three as they make their way. It is a story of a mother's love and decisions made. It is a haunting story which will remain with you long after you've closed its pages. "
