Anne Frank: the symbol of the Holocaust. Yet six million voices reverberate in utter silence. Margot Frank, unbeknownst to many, kept a diary in hiding too. The Silent Sister is Margot’s viewpoint and her personal journey. Margot lets us into her world, her take on the War, the Annexe, Peter, and her secret love, Mordechai, and more. Margot’s experiences are juxtaposed with Anne’s in an original and ultimately triumphant new voice— a voice that has been waiting silently to emerge from the ashes of the Shoah. Margot Frank can now join her lovely sister in the collective testimony of the inexorable human spirit forced to submit to the horrors of the Holocaust, and despite it all, to somehow love, to somehow remain humane and free.

For years, Jenny and sister Kim suffered horrendous physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their father. They survived in part because of their closeness and their determination to be there for each other. Both sisters left home at the earliest opportunity to escape but before long, Jenny was embroiled in a relationship with an abusive man that kept her locked in a cycle of violence and fear. Their lives followed parallel paths, with first marriage, then kids and always the terror that things would never change. Eventually, with a lot of love, grit and courage they helped each other to climb out of the pit of despair and truly free themselves from the legacy of the past. Every bit as harrowing and inspiring as Behind Closed Doors, this is a story of the power of unstintingly loyal love.

Game of Thrones, one of the hottest series on television, leaves hundreds of critics divided on how "feminist" the show really is. Certainly the female characters, strong and weak, embody a variety of archetypes--widow queens, warrior women, damsels in distress, career women, priestesses, crones, mothers and maidens. However, the problem is that most of them play a single role without nuance--even the "strong women" have little to do besides strut about as one-note characters. This book analyzes the women and their portrayals one by one, along with their historical inspirations. Accompanying issues in television studies also appear, from the male gaze to depiction of race. How these characters are treated in the series and how they treat themselves becomes central, as many strip for the pleasure of men or are sacrificed as pawns. Some nude scenes or moments of male violence are fetishized and filmed to tantalize, while others show the women's trauma and attempt to identify with the scene's female perspective. The key is whether the characters break out of their traditional roles and become multidimensional.
