Clear that no place is safe not for Jewish families like the Rosens not for Shanghai's poor not for adventurous women pilotsBased on a true story here is a rich transcendent novel about a little known time in Holocaust histo. Currently I am reading all things Shanghai and since my mom was a girl growing up in Shanghai I found Anya's War to be an interesting perspective Simple read but a fresh perspective of a complex subject in a very multi cultural city during the beginning of WWII

This book was a page turner for me I couldn't put it down The research that went into this book created an all consuming view of a horrible past for the Jews The author writes in a way that takes the reader 'right there' inside the storyI'm so proud to know Andrea; it's great to have a friend that is such an accomplished writer
