During the Korean War, an elderly childless couple, refugees, find a boy near death and rescue him. This details their life afterwards. Very well done; unlike most stories of this ilk, the couple’s reactions to the new “member of the family” are complex and very human, and not easily smoothed out. So is the boy’s reaction. It’s a grim but hopeful book. Not as good as Potok’s usual stories of Jewish New Yorkers, or perhaps I don’t like stories about bare survival as well as high-flung psychology—but definitely worth a read.
