The Lullaby of Polish Girls: A Novel by Dagmara Dominczyk

The Lullaby of Polish girls is a coming of age novel, that spans the life of three characters. The story flashes back and forth to current day and the past. It can at times be confusing as it doesn't flashback in chronological order.

It covers childhood, adolescence and adulthood. The lives of these three women are told in an honest, raw format. It is not a light read, it can be crude and and hard core.

This book deals with death, sorrow, murder and the disappointments that life can hand out. It takes place in, Poland and the United States. I am not very familiar with Poland or Polish customs and at times found it difficult to relate to characters or get an understanding of their culture.

It was neither mesmerized nor bored by this cast of characters.  This is typical run of the mill novel.

Grade: C
