The Lost Wife, by Alyson Richman

The Lost Wife, by Alyson RichmanThe Lost Wife, enjoyed great popularity when it was first published two years ago by Long Island author Alyson Richman.  It was a lovingly written, heartbreaking story of love torn apart by the Nazi invasion of Prague.  It is narrated from the two points of view of a newly-wed couple, Lenka and Josef, whose families are pulled apart by the Holocaust.  Experiencing horror and tragedy, Lenka and Josef tell how they survive, create a future for themselves and are given a second chance.  A good read for fans of historical fiction.
