February Book Discussion - "Stones from the River" by Ursula Hegi

Set in a small German town around 1915, this book is seen thru the eyes of Trudi Montag, a dwarf and the town's unofficial historian. Through Trudi's unblinking eyes, we witness the growing impact of Nazism on the ordinary townsfolk of Burgdorf as they are thrust on to a larger moral stage and forced to make choices that will forever mark their lives. Stones from the River is a story of secrets, parceled out masterfully by Trudi -- and by Ursula Hegi -- as they reveal the truth about living through unspeakable times.

    I agree with Julie. I was on the fence about the book, but appreciate others comments.

    Yes, even though I didn't like the book, I enjoyed hearing others talk about what they found interesting and it's redeeming qualities.
