Morality. Alice Hoffman explores the forces of good and evil in her novel titled, The World That We Knew. Surrounded by the forces of evil, but unable to escape Berlin in 1941, a mother struggles to protect her twelve-year-old daughter. Our world can turn upside down in an instant and evil can seem victorious. Love can survive loss and even in dire situations, the power of love can prevail. Hoffman’s prose is finely written, the character development complex and interesting, and the exploration of morality unblinking at both goodness and evil.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
