Book review: Alice Hoffman’s ‘The World That We Knew’ is a beautiful, magical response to the Holocaust

“The World That We Knew” continues to explore the ideas that readers have come to expect from the works of Alice Hoffman. Like those before it, this novel is about mothers and daughters, good and evil, magic and faith. It is very much about survival, too — take a minute to think about the use of the past tense in the book’s title. 

It is also possibly the most beautiful novel readers are likely to encounter this year.
