Eva's storyUser Review - Book Verdict
With this beautifully written first novel, Cirino brings a different perspective to life in Nazi Germany. The persecution of Jews is the catalyst that propels Eva, the main character and narrator, into a world where she has no reference point. Eva's entire raison d' tre has always been her farm and, secondarily, her husband and children. After her husband goes off to war, a young Jewish man named Nathanael turns up in her chicken coop, a place that has been her domain only. With Eva's implied consent, Nathanael stays, becoming a friend, helper, educator, and, most significantly, lover. Through Nathanael and her ever-widening forays into the world, Eva begins to allow herself to care for herself and others with an empathy she had never known. In this spirit, she plans for the escape to Switzerland of Nathanael and another refugee, and the reader senses that they will not be the last to take refuge in her chicken coop. Recommended for both public and academic libraries.--Patricia Gulian, South Portland, ME ...
