And No More Sorrow: A Mother, Her Daughter, Their War
The year is 1940. The place is Amsterdam, Holland. In a Europe that is torn apart by a Nazi regime, Sonja is forced to come to grips with unbelievable losses-her husband, her family, her way of life-all by the age of eighteen. In And No More Sorrow Pelzman, Sonja's daughter, vividly and masterfully presents her mother's story against the historical events that took place during Hitler's regime. After a long period of being incommunicado, during which Pelzman wrestles with her mother's pain, mother and daughter reconnect and make history together. Sonja's story teaches the reader that ultimately, it is friends, love, and family that motivate and guide us through our most challenging moments. And No More Sorrow succeeds on many levels. At once thrilling, passionate and educational, it deserves a place in the ranks of biographical literature.
