Publisher's Summary

 

A woman’s life-altering discovery after her mother’s death sheds light on the best and worst of humanity in this haunting short story by New York Times bestselling author Martha Hall Kelly.

After her mother’s passing, Aldona finds a tin filled with old letters from a prisoner at Ravensbrück, a women’s concentration camp in northern Germany. Amid the descriptions of daily deprivations and humiliations at the camp, she uncovers the heart-wrenching story of a small circle of women who risked their lives to hide a baby girl from the guards. Aldona is rocked to the core by this record of courage and sisterhood during one of the grimmest chapters of human history.

Martha Hall Kelly’s Naomi’s Gift is part of A Point in Time, a transporting collection of stories about the pivotal moments, past and present, that change lives. Read or listen to each immersive story in a single sitting.

A powerful and heartbreaking story.

" they do not think we are humans". This line got me. I wanted the story to continue but the ending tied it well.

Quick read and great narration

Story flowers nicely even though it was a bit back and forth on the timeline. It helped connect the characters. The narration was well done with emotion and added to the story.

Powerful Story

I enjoyed the different take on this book about the Holocaust. Hope & determination was how they survived. Thought provoking, excellent story.
