The Lost Wife

The Lost Wife - Alyson Richman I adored this book. It is the story of a young married couple separated by the events of World War 2. He escapes their native Prague. ending up in America; she chooses to stay behind with her family. The chaos of the time causes each of them to think the other dead, and they subsequently remarry.
Many years later at a family event , they finally meet again..
This story begins with that fateful meeting, and takes us back in time to tell of their experiences in the war, including the wife's time in a concentration camp with all that it entails.
I found this to be both beautiful and engrossing..
