When Dave Razkowski fall from the rock-face he is climbing, he is unwillingly brought into the lives of Wolff Blumen and Al Logan, all children of Holocaust survivors. When the lives of these three men intersect, they are forced to deal with secrets and buried pain, with their own childhoods and the adult lives they have chosen to make for themselves, with their parents' experiences during the Holocaust and their own reactions to it. With lies, secrets, betrayal, hidden aspects of their personalities. And, most of all, with love. The love for their families. Their growing respect and understanding for each other. Highly gripping and weaving the three men's stories together like a fine tapestry, Barrie's The Binding exquisitely patterns the fine and delicate fabric that connects not only Holocaust survivors and their children to each other as well as to other survivors' children, but to all of us.
