Famous Israeli author Yoel Blum had sworn to his late mother than he would never visit Amsterdam, the place he was born and where he, his mother and sister escaped from during WWII. But he agrees to go to appease his publisher and makes a discovery that changes his understanding of who he is. Yoel decides to write a novel based on what he’s discovered. The normal dual story line style of this genre is replaced by Yoel in the present day interwoven with his writing of his story. This style may not appeal to all but it is effective. It was noted that many people believe that Jewish families in the Netherlands were not impacted as greatly during WWII but House On Endless Waters dispels that myth. A worthwhile read.
