Vicki chats with NY Times Bestseller Heather Gudenkauf about her follow up to her highly successful debut novel. And later we hear from Eric Lamet, who as a Jewish child during the holocaust was forced to flee to Italy where he and his mother embarked on a frightening and epic journey to avoid capture by the Nazis. Today, we also hear from Cathy Sosnowsky regarding her latest book. 

Heather Gudenkauf’s first novel The Weight of Silence proved to be a huge success, topping the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Now she returns with her follow-up These Things Hidden, in which she deftly tells the chilling story of three families united by a secret the night two babies are born. Gudenkauf is a advocate of Safe Haven laws, including information about them at the end of her book.

In his book A Child Al Confino: The True Story of a Jewish Boy and His Mother in Mussolini’s Italy, Eric Lamet provides an unforgettable look at an untold chapter in World War II history. He tells of the harrowing journey to avoid the death camps, all while his mother tried to maintain a semblance of a normal life for him. Lamet is a retired CEO whose children and seven granddaughters inspired him to tell his tale.

Cathy Sosnowsky’s latest work is a book uniquely and skillfully written around family photographs. It’s entitled Snapshots: A Story of Love, Loss, and Life.
