Kristen M, May 26, 2010 (view all comments by Kristen M)
This is a story that moves through time, beginning in 1996, shortly after the end of the Bosnian war, with a woman asked to restore the Sarajevo Haggadah -- a Jewish prayer book unique in that it contains illustrations and that it survived since the 1400s when it was created. As Hanna, the art specialist, discovers various clues to the history of the book, we are transported back in time to hear the imagined stories behind those clues. We also learn of the plight of the Jews in various times in history. Though we read about significant abuse and loss, we also read of the kindness of strangers, the strength of faith and a belief in a better future.
