Reading Romance Between (And Under) The Covers

Two Rings is an exquisitely told story of love in the darkest of times. Millie Werber was born in a town in Poland. At 14, she was confined to a Jewish ghetto, and the next year she became a slave laborer in an armaments factory. She was sent to Auschwitz in the summer of 1944, and then sent on to a different armaments factory. Against all odds, she survived.

These bleak facts don't sum up a memoir that reels between pain and joy. The heart of the book is the story of Millie

Mary Bly
