By Rosner, Jennifer
Poland, 1941. Roza and her five-year-old daughter, Shira, are the only surviving Jews left in their town. They spend day and night staying hidden and silent in the barn of a local family who have taken pity on them, though their generosity comes at a price. Forbidden from making ...a sound, only the yellow bird from her mother's stories can sing the melodies Shira composes in her head. Roza does all she can to take care of Shira. She makes sure she gets enough food, even if it means going without herself. They play silent games and invent their own sign language. But then the day comes when their haven is no longer safe, and Roza must face an impossible choice: whether the best thing she can do for her daughter is keep her close, or let her go . . . The Yellow Bird Sings is a gripping, moving and unforgettable novel about what it means to lose everything and the redemptive power of love.Read more
