Today Kirkus posted this great review of “Stolen Legacy.”
The piece concludes:
… an engaging, well-written depiction of how the Holocaust destroyed individual lives as well as families and community relationships. Although the story centers on a valuable piece of property, Gold’s measured, compassionate prose makes it clear that it’s not a tale of financial gain, but one of justice and the survival of a persecuted people.
A highly readable account of one family’s fight for personal and financial vindication.
