Come Back for Me, Paperback / softback Book

Come Back for Me Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Loss, trauma, memory, and, above all, the ties of family and being Jewish are the elements that weave together this panoramic story.

Come Back for Me travels through time and place only to bring us, ultimately, to the connections between generations.

Artur Mandelkorn is a young Hungarian Holocaust survivor whose desperate quest to find his sister takes him to post-war Israel.

Intersecting Artur's tale is that of Suzy Kohn, a Toronto teenager whose seemingly tranquil life is shattered when her uncle's sudden death tears her family apart.

Their stories eventually come together in Israel following the Six-Day War, where love and understanding become the threads that bind the two narratives together.

Like Sarah's Key, Come Back for Me deals evocatively with the scars left by tragedy and the possibilities for healing.
