THE ENTIRE PLOT WITH TRUDY AS IS ANOTHER entire plot with Trudy as there is another we must onHannah was a hard character for me to understand or to even relate to in any way She was a Holocaust survivor who has had her heart broken as she lost both her husband and son at Auschwitz When she survives the camp she ecides that Australia might be the best place to settle She moves to the small town where Tom lives and Climate Smart Agriculture (Natural Resource Management and Policy Book 52) decides to start a bookshop she hires Tom to build shelves for her Tom not yet uite over Trudy begins to have feelings for Hannah It is never really clear to me why but Hannah is very clearly pursuing Tom maybe it is because he is settled and a good man That s a uestion that still remains in my mind After only a few months they marrySome happy years pass but then Peter Tom s adopted son is finally returned to him from Trudy and the Jesus Camp where he had been livingThe circumstances surrounding this how his mother was able to take Peter away I will leave for you toiscover This sort of came out of nowhere for me Now there is the Academic Body decision to be made Can Hannah who lost her own little boy come to care about Peter She has many uestions she has to answer for herself and explaining too to TomI never uite connected to any of the characters in this book Trudy was just a user of people anything to get what she thought she wanted With Hannah I was never sure even at the end how much she loved Tom or if this is just the life that she wants to live Tom comes across as a good but weak man he keeps taking these women back even after they have left him one several timesThis was a slow read for me I Saint Germain On Alchemy did better when I was reading this for just a couple of hours and then coming back to it the nextay It is not a happy book in many places it is extremely sad I m not sure about the message that the author was trying to convey with this book I felt as though I was eeply entrenched with one story line only to be pulled away while Hannah relives *her past life in auschwitz and even before *past life in Auschwitz and even before felt as though these two stories were only connected by the characters and efinitely not because there were any similarities in the lives that Hannah and Tom had lived so far I was also surprised that Tom would marry a woman so much older than him who has already told him she will not have any children Tom knew how much he loved Peter and having a child aroundI think the writing in this book is excel. Prising talent as a father So when Trudy finds Jesus and takes little Peter away with her to join the holy rollers Tom’s heart breaks all over againEnter Hannah Babel uixotic smalltown bookseller the second Jew and the most vivid person To. ,
