Anna Abrams Kelly is an abused spouse who has finally gotten enough strength to leave her horrible situation. She leaves on a trip to Germany to help her neighbor find a missing person who helped him during World War II. Anna has hired a driver and translator, Josef Schmitt, who is recovering from a terrible accident that has affected him physically and mentally. The two form a bond and forge a way to find the healing they both need. This beautifully-written story was poignant and heartwarming. I truly think it is one of the most original and realistic stories of love and second chances that I’ve read in a long time. I loved this book and am really looking forward to reading more of Susan Struth’s fabulous storytelling.
Saving Anna by Sharon Struth is available from Lyrical Press, an imprint of Kensington Books. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
