Dear Librarians,

It is July, 1941 when Rosha Kaninsky, a girl and her family are forced from their Vilna ghetto by the invading Nazis. While across the ocean in a rich Brooklyn culture, shaken by shock-waves from abroad, Mira Kane, a teenager who dreams of escaping to Hollywood is swept into her parents' spiraling fear over the fate of their European relatives. Inspired by true events, two cousins' strikingly different lives promise to converge in this heartbreaking tender tale of hope, while paying homage to the survivor guilt that coexists with joy.

[THE SWEETNESS] is a beautifully crafted portrait of life in its rawest form during a time of great unrest — Publishers Weekly.
