Jodi needed a better editor with this book. Her holocaust story was gripping and well done. The modern day story was filled with unnecessary characters that detracted from the main theme. The fable was really silly and unnecessary as well. All in all an interesting read, well researched and written, but not well edited. I believe that when authors become really famous and prolific they start to sacrifice quality for quantity and perhaps their editors have less influence. I think in Jodi's case she fits this bill. She still writes well and tackles interesting subjects, but many of her books seem to have storylines "borrowed" from other books. I truly wish she would slow down and put more effort into each book rather than just churning them out.
