After years of hiding and surviving near-death in a concentration camp, Ross is finally safe. Now living in New York City among old friends, far from Europe's chilling atrocities, Ross soon meets Natasha, a beautiful model and fellow migre, a warm heart to help him forget his cold memories.

Yet even as the war draws to its violent close, Ross cannot find peace. Demons still pursue him. Whether they are ghosts from the past or the guilt of surviving, he does not know. For he is only beginning to understand that freedom is far from easy--and that paradise, however perfect, has a price. . . .

    But I also knew that there was no going back. One can never go back; nothing and no one is ever the same. All that remained was an occasional evening of sadness, the sadness that we all feel because ...

    I thought this book was amazing and I can't believe I have overlooked this author my whole life. I had certainly heard of "All Quiet on the Western Front" but haven't read it. Will rectify that soon. ...

    I just love Remarque ! Can you find better writer? No! I know that it is wrong to build idols. But for me the writing of Remarque is perfect. Every his novel is a masterpiece for me. It resinates insi...

    I consider Remarque as one of the leading writers of his period. His style is deep, thoughtful, expressionist. His style is subtle, and gives the reader to figure out his conclusions for himself. I ta...

    I found it simple and wonderful. A simple story about life of an ordinary person who survived in war. Taking deeper, a story about the long-term influence of II world war on people's lives: they can n...
