Book Reviews: Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English

This book has become a new favorite. As the story begins, you learn that Mr. Rosenblum and his wife and daughter immigrated from Germany in 1937 to England to escape Hitler.  The story is about the rest of his life as he tries his hardest to become the ideal English gentleman. I found it to be witty and a little quirky. It has both comedy and tragedy. It really made me want to visit the English countryside! It does get a little slow in the beginning, but once you get past that, you won't be able to put it down. It's a very interesting look at what life was like for Jewish immigrants. I'll be looking out for more from this author!
