From the Author
"This is as compelling a story as you would ever want to read...This book is different in its passion and its presentation. It is worth your time and you won't be disappointed. Once We Were Brothers is a new look at an old story, and it will stay with you long after you have finished it." --Jackie K Cooper, Huffington Post
"A novel of survival, justice and redemption... riveting." --Chicago Tribune, on Once We Were Brothers
"The phenomenal triumph of lawyer-author John Grisham's legal thrillers has spawned surprisingly few successful emulators; however, Chicago attorney Balson's first novel, while featuring a young lawyer heroine, Catherine Lockhart, who sees her bar admission as a license to further justice, is no simple imitation of Grisham's entertaining potboilers..., this novel is uplifting and moving, intelligently written and featuring historically accurate context and an unusual insight into human character and motivations. Highly recommended for all readers." --Library Journal (starred)
"Balson does a number of things superbly: he crafts a highly readable plotline and makes great use of the Chicago backdrop...many will enjoy this gripping novel for its narrative drive and its emotional storytelling." --Booklist
"The author describes the atrocities of wartime Poland and the beautiful, eternal romance between Ben Solomon and his wife, Hannah. Balson's first novel is hard to put down." --The Jewish Book World
"A legal thriller...a reader knows he's writing from the inside. " --Chicago Jewish Star--This text refers to the paperback edition.

At no stage did I get bored, exasperated or confused. Nice one !!!!!!!!
Having said this, the novel is well paced and although the ending is perhaps predictable, it is a book which is very hard to put down, so recommended for a long haul flight or a day or two by the shore with minimum disruptions.
Great read for anyone interested in the holocaust.
