The 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.
