The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean, 247 pages

A really interesting read that takes place during WWII in Russia, looking at the people who lived in the Hermitage during the siege of Leningrad. I loved how the book went back and forth, through the eyes of an Alzheimer's sufferer, who may not have been able to remember day to day details in her current life but sank deep into the past vividly. I finished the book wanting to read more about this time period in Leningrad.
