A Hungarian Portrait is one of twelve bestselling books from Israeli author Orly Krauss-Wiener. This WW2 historical novel is based on a true story of a Jewish Holocaust survivor. I’ve read this author before, and she delivers again with this wonderfully written and richly descriptive narrative. With brilliantly drawn characters motivated by family and loyalty, the author weaves a well-crafted and all-encompassing human dramatization that spans from mid-1940s Hungary to present-day Israel. This was a fascinating and captivating read that had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of emotional highs and lows in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly mesmerizing journey. There’s an ample supply of mystery, romance and suspense that will captivate the reader from the first page to the last. Skillfully constructed, the story touches on thought-provoking themes as well as being a very enjoyable read. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    A wonderful read and the Hungarian background was compelling to me being of Hungarian decent. What is so remarkable was this was a true story. Having said all that, I highly recommend this book to anyone to understand what took place with Jewish families at this time. Much hit home for me and I am sue for anyone with this background. Even so, the work was really well written and has been one of my favorites. Marc

    Good story I enjoyed this book. I like the spirit of the characters through their struggles. I wish only that they had been written a little more depth because I like them and would like to know them better.

    A Hungarian Portrait A Hungarian Portrait is not the usual World War II story. It is not dark and depressing. The book tells of the love of a family and how they evolved through the years.

    Very emotional read I absorbed this book and couldn’t read it fast enough to find out what happened next! I also loved that it was centered in Hungary as my grandfather immigrated to the states from there.

    This was a great read!! I gave A Hungarian Portrait five stars because it made me laugh and cry. It was written with skill, wit, and whimsy. Bravo, Orly, well done. I hope the next comes quickly.

    Great Read Enjoyed reading this book. Daryl was like a real person with feelings and emotions. I would recommend it to anyone who likes realistic characters. I couldn’t see her traveling so much, even if she was a flight attendant. I stayed up until after 1:00 am to finish it.

    I thought this was a book about WW2. In my opinion, it wasn't. It was a story about a Hungarian family. It lightly touched on WW2 and even more lightly the Holocaust. I was throughly disappointed. I thought this was a book about WW2. In my opinion, it wasn't. It was a story about a Hungarian family. It lightly touched on WW2 and even more lightly the Holocaust.

    This was a very interesting, heartwarming story that enthralled me throughout. I was an easy read, though some topics were hard to absorb due to the tragedy involved. However, despite this processing, it left me with a smile on my face.

    Really poor. I felt as though this was written by a 5th grader. Struggled to read it although it did improve near the end.

    An excellent story, and being of Hungarian Heritage I could relate to some parts and enjoyed the customs . I felt like I was leaving family and friends when I finished reading.
