Very emotional. I loved this book. My mom got it for me on Easter.

This sequel to I Have Lived a Thousand Years (1997) takes Elli Friedman from liberation to her arrival in the United States six years later. As a survivor and displaced person, the heroine attempts to form relationships and continue her education, yet feels guilty for wanting a normal life.
