By Ursula Hegi
Five stars, second in the series. The first book, Stones from the River, is more linear in the telling of a German town WW1 & WW2. This one is a generation later, told an essay format, between the chronigal timeline of the daughter of some of the principal characters from the first book, interspersed with slice of life stories about other characters. It is a beautifully designed tapestry. Coming in under 200 pages, I would have enjoyed twice that much. There are two more books in the series, I’m looking forward to them.
