I am reviewing a copy of Something Beautiful Happened through Howard Books and Netgalley:
Seven decades after her Grandmother helped hide a Jewish Family on a Greek island during the Second World War a woman sets out to track their descendants. 1,795 Jewish peoplecweee transported to Corfu and of those only 121 survived. In October of 1944 British Soldiers arrived and freed the Island of German Occupation. But even the end of the Jewishoccupation did not mean it was safe for the Jews returning home. The once vibrant community was reduced to ash.
Yvette and her family wrestled with the tragedy in their own eyes, the stories of Holocaust survivors helped them to make sense of the present.
This book brings the past and present together in interweaving storylines. It reminds us of the power of Faith, the importance of kindness, and the courage and the courage to stand up for what’s right in the face of evil.
I give Something Beautiful Happenened five out of five stars.
