And No More Sorrow
The year is 1940. The place is Amsterdam, Holland. In a Europe that is torn apart by a Nazi regime, Sonja is forced to come to grips with unbelievable losses – her husband, her family, her way way of life – all by the age of twenty-one.
In And No More Sorrow Pelzman,daughter, vividly and masterfully presents her
mother’s story against the historical events that took place during Hitler‘s regime. After a long period of estrangement, during which Pelzman wrestles with her mother’s pain, mother and daughter reconnect. Sonja’s story teaches the reader that ultimately, it is friends, love, and family that motivate and guide us through our most challenging moments.
And No More Sorrow succeeds on many levels. At once thrilling, passionate, and educational, it deserves a place in the ranks of biographical literature. (Kirkus)
