Best Memoir/Autobiography Award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors

"Because of Eva is a book of inspiration . . . a Jewish celebration, and a universally human book. It is a profoundly moving story, and also a story within a story. . . . With the talents of a gifted storyteller, Gordon uses language to approach the indescribable, and the window she offers readers is very real, often painful, and amazingly generous."—Arthur Kurzweil, author of From Generation to Generation: How to Trace Your Jewish Genealogy and Family History

"I was immediately gripped by Gordon’s unfolding story and vivid portrayal of the personalities and relationships of her relatives. Her research on the historical context of their lives, and her exploration of family secrets and myths will be models for the genealogical community."—Renee Stern Steinig, genealogist and former president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Long Island

"Because of Eva is an unflinching, honest, and brave memoir, a woman’s journey to come to terms with her family’s shattered history. At times bewildered, but never bitter, Gordon explores this difficult topic with tremendous insight and sensitivity."—Amy Hill Hearth, author of In a World Gone Mad: A Heroic Story of Love, Faith, and Survival

"As Gordon searches for and retells the heretofore hidden stories of her family, she reconnects them to her own life. This is a moving, well-written, entertaining, yet haunting book of events and stories based on the Jewish experience."—Zsuzsanna Ozsvath, The Leah and Paul Lewis Professor of Holocaust Studies, professor of literature and the history of ideas at the University of Texas at Dallas
