Bending Toward The Sun
Leslie Gilbert Lurie, with Rita Lurie

pp 368/$25.99

From Rachel Elinsky at HarperCollins

From Holocaust survivor Rita Lurie and her daughter, Leslie Gilbert-Lurie, comes a beautiful and haunting dual memoir of a deep family bond, forged in the wake of a brutal terror. In Bending Toward the Sun, Rita and Leslie weave a riveting and rare first-hand account how the Holocaust experience has a profound psychological impact on survivors and also extends into the lives of their descendants. Bending Toward the Wind links mother, daughter, and granddaughter, and shows how the resilient human heart survives to help heal future generations.
