The Street Sweeper
The Street Sweeper takes the reader through several stories, intertwined through the civil rights movement in America and the Holocaust. It paints the eras, and the pain and inhumanity in searing detail. You feel what the characters feel and it is impossible to remain unmoved, particularly as you read the scenes set in Auschwitz.
This book reminds of us of how terrible people can be to each other but also, how kindness can redeem and heal and give hope.
