Review: Life has changed in Hungary following World War II. Kata must use a new name and her mother must support their family by making stuffed bears and ladies' handbags. Her father is suffering from depression. This story of a Jewish family learning to live under Soviet rule is wonderfully written in a way that makes the reader sympathize with the trials of postwar life.
