Summary American Book Award Winner: A stunning memoir of surviving WWII Latviaand the long journey to healing that followed ( The New York Times Book Review ). A heartbreaking yet inspiring memoir of tragedy and healing, A Woman in Amber tells the story of how the occupation of Latvia during World War II affected a woman's relationship with her mother and husband for years to come (Tim O'Brien). Though Agate Nesaule eventually immigrated to the United States and became successful in her professional life, she found herself suffering from depression and unable to come to terms with its causeuntil she found her voice and began to share what happened to her and her family at the hands of invading Russian soldiers. In a true story that draws the reader forward with the suspense of a novel, Nesaule reveals the effects of hunger, both physical and emotional, in stories about begging Russian soldiers for food, the abusive relationship with her first husband, and the redemption that came when she met her second ( The New York Times Book Review ).
