Publisher's Summary

Early on a grey November morning in 1941, only weeks after the German invasion, a small Ukrainian town is overrun by the SS.

Deft, spare and devastating, Rachel Seiffert's new novel tells of the three days that follow and the lives that are overturned in the process.

Penned in with his fellow Jews, under threat of transportation, Ephraim anxiously awaits word of his two sons, missing since daybreak. Come in search of her lover, to fetch him home again, away from the invaders, Yasia must confront new and harsh truths about those closest to her. Here to avoid a war he considers criminal, German engineer Otto Pohl is faced with an even greater crime unfolding behind the lines and no one but himself to turn to.

And in the midst of it all is the determined boy, Yankel, who will throw his and his young brother's chances of surviving to strangers.

A Boy in Winter is a story of hope when all is lost and of mercy when the times have none.

    Story
    "Superb, Seiffert does it again, must read."
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Boy in Winter to be better than the print version?

    It's not better or worse just more convenient if you are driving a lot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The period fascinates me, and her writing is very, very good


    Did Jilly Bond do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Unfortunately not, quite irritating reading, but the story was so good I could tolerate
    the reading. I do usually like her reading but not on this occasion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you read it or listen to it, you have to give this a go.
