When visions come to you through unrelenting dreams, crying to be written, one eventually complies. Hence, we have the story of a young man who is to take on the challenge of sharing a life unfinished, a life that has been cut short at a death camp designed for mass murder. It offers the possibility that the darkest part of man can be slayed by the strength and victory of a beautiful spirit. It is both a lesson in history and an offer of hope as our world continues to struggle in the fight of good versus evil.

    A beautifully told tale of a young man's modern-day journey of a lifetime interwoven with the story of a boy's final journey to Treblinka 40 years earlier. The characters are so real, and the descriptions make it so easy to move back and forth between the 2 settings. This is a true story of hope and the power of family. The ending brought this reader to bittersweet tears.

  • Barnes and Noble

    A literary gem! A tour de force! The authors bring to “life” the horrors of the holocaust as experienced by its victims and witnessed firsthand by those of us now safely removed from the Nazi evil. This work is so compelling that the reader will not be able to stop until the last word has been reached and absorbed. A must read for our generation as it seeks to reach beyond an intellectual perspective of the holocaust to an emotional and spiritual understanding of the horrors that man is capable of inflicting to the everlasting detriment of our humanity. This book will awaken its readers to a reality as “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” did to a long ago generation.

    This is an incredible, interwoven tale of 2 young men. The first is a sweet young boy in Poland at the beginning of the war. The second is a young college-aged male during the late 1970's who makes an epic pilgrimage to Treblinka and the horrors bestowed there. We are taken to the earliest days of the Nazi regime and the sudden, tragic loss of innocence delivered there. We follow this young boy's heartbreaking journey and his desperate attempt to shield what is left of his family. We track the older boy's lifetime quest to travel to the place where the gates of hell were thrown open and try to make sense of the devastation that took place so many years ago. These characters are so richly created and their stories both so sadly relate-able yet this is a story about hope, and about the strength and devotion of family. Despite the backdrop and the unspeakable horrors of the war, this story keeps you looking for more. The story ends with a beautiful, unexpected small turn that is truly heartwarming in its own regard. I am so eagerly looking forward to seeing the future works of these gifted writers

    This is a story about a young man (Colin) that writes a research paper for college about the Holocaust and the Nazi death camp's (Treblinka in Poland). Due to his intense research, it inspires him to travel to Poland and visit Treblinka. While visiting Treblinka he has a spiritual encounter with a young murdered victim (Janusz) from the evil Nazi's. This story display's the power of love and family. While reading it I feel as though I was literally beside the victim's that were so brutally murdered. This book is a must read for every generation wanting to learn about the atrocities carried out by Hitler and his henchmen.

    The Ghost of the Nightingale lifts a corner of the horrible shroud over Jewish humanity that was The Holocaust, revealing an impact “you will never forget.”

  • M. C.

    Intense and powerful, the story grips you from page 1. The horrors and atrocities of Treblinka and the Holocaust brilliantly woven into an emotional tale and told from a unique perspective. Brutal and beautiful, I didn't want the story to end.

  • William

    A unique look at the Holocaust. The writers capture your imagination. Like the writer, I felt I was there. Books such as this one, keep the memory of the Holocaust alive. I would recommend all to read!

  • Christina

    This novel had me guessing where the story was going at every turn of the page. Though it recounts a familiar historical time period, the story that it tells is unique and intriguing. I particularly loved how it came full circle and ultimately is a message about peace and humanity.
