I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Book Description

The gripping tale about two boys, once as close as brothers, who find themselves on opposite sides of the Holocaust.

Elliot Rosenzweig, a respected civic leader and wealthy philanthropist, is attending a fundraiser when he is suddenly accosted and accused of being a former Nazi SS officer named Otto Piatek, the Butcher of Zamosc. Although the charges are denounced as preposterous, his accuser is convinced he is right and engages attorney Catherine Lockhart to bring Rosenzweig to justice. Solomon persuades attorney Catherine Lockhart to take his case, revealing that the true Piatek was abandoned as a child and raised by Solomon’s own family only to betray them during the Nazi occupation. But has Solomon accused the right man?

Once We Were Brothers is Ronald H. Balson’s compelling tale of two boys and a family who struggle to survive in war-torn Poland, and a young love that struggles to endure the unspeakable cruelty of the Holocaust. Two lives, two worlds, and sixty years converge in an explosive race to redemption that makes for a moving and powerful tale of love, survival, and ultimately the triumph of the human spirit.

Pros
If you love legal thrillers, this is the book for you. It is simply fantastic. The story spirals through the book as your journey is entertaining and informative. It is a must read like no other.
Cons
The plot line seems a little choppy sometimes. It is a setting that has been just about overdone. The time line is great.
Summary
For a legal story, this book stands head and shoulders above all others. It has historical accuracy that seems so well researched that the reality is tangible. The characters are real. You can hear them. You can see them. You can feel what they feel. You don't want to put it down when you start reading it. The underlying love story is so subtle that you can easily overlook it when describing the book, yet it is such a key detail that the book wouldn't be the same without it. Just read it. You will be so glad that you did.
