"It is wartime in German-occupied Poland. A mother hides with her five-year-old daughter, a musical prodigy whose slightest sound may cost them their lives. The girl is forbidden from making a sound, so the yellow bird sings. He sings whatever the girl composes in her head: high-pitched trills of piccolo; low-throated growls of contrabassoon. Music helps the flowers bloom. When the daisies grow abundant, the bird weaves a garland for the girl to wear on her head like a princess-though no one can see. She must hide from everyone in the village: soldiers, the farmhouse boys, the neighbors too. The lady with squinty eyes and blocky shoes just dragged a boy down the street and returned, proud and straight-backed, cradling a sack of sugar like a baby. After the Jews in their town are rounded up, Róza and her daughter, Shira, spend day and night hidden in a farmer's barn. Shira struggles to stay still and quiet, as music pulses inside her. To pass the time, Róza tells Shira a story: There is a little girl who, with the help of her yellow bird, tends an enchanted garden. The garden must be kept completely silent-only the bird can sing the girl's musical compositions-and together the girl and her bird avert many threats. Thus Róza manages to soothe Shira and shield her from the horrors around them. But then the day comes when their haven is no longer safe and Róza must face an impossible choice: whether to keep Shira by her side, or give her the chance to survive apart. The Yellow Bird Sings is a beautiful, heartrending novel about the unbreakable bond between a mother and a daughter, and the triumph of hope in even the darkest of times"--… (mais)

This was a beautiful, though often sad, account of a Jewish mother and daughter during World War II. Many of the other reviewers did an excellent job of describing the plot so I won't repeat that. I am glad that I listened to the audiobook as the reader did a wonderful job. ( )

There are a lot of really excellent WWII books out there. This one fell short for me. A Jewish mother and her daughter take refuge in the barn of a Polish family after her husband is killed on a work detail and the grandparents are taken away. The barn scenes were sickening, at least for me. Eventually, the mother decides it would be safer to have her daughter become a hidden child in a Catholic convent while the mother hides in the woods: a wrenching decision. Separated by the war, the mother befriends a pair of women and joins a renegade group after more trauma. Meanwhile, the convent hides the daughter until her musical genius takes over. The convent is moved after the city is moved, making their reunion nearly impossible. 2.5 stars rounded up. ( )

'The Yellow Bird Sings' is the book for the Historiathon readathon 2021. I decided to listen to the audiobook through the Scribd app. For a debut, work is outstanding. As the third generation of Holocaust survivors from both my parents, I believe Jennifer Rosner does a fantastic thing describing the ambiance and the feelings of primary and secondary characters. The book has many Yiddish and Hebrew parts that Anna Koval, the audiobook narrator, did a fantastic job.
The pain, desperation, the longing of a mother and her young child as they try to survive together, then in compromise and then in separation ... and their shared music...
This novel is well written and flows well. I found the use of expressive imagery in the form of the little yellow bird both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. I think any readers of WWII historical fiction will want to read this book, the characters are very well described, and I felt very connected to them. ( )

It is 1941 and we find Roza and Shira hiding in a barn after they fled the city where they lived.

Roza saw her parents and husband killed, and she realized the only way to keep her daughter safe was to run.

Shira was only five, had a gift for music, but could not make a sound.

They hid for approximately 400 days in a barn. It definitely was difficult to keep a five-year-old child quiet, but Shira did it.

It eventually became too dangerous to keep hiding. The farmer's wife took Shira from Roza and sent her to an orphanage while Roza fled into the woods.

Your heart will break for the characters as you wonder how you would feel about having to send your children away to protect them.

We follow both characters as they yearn for each other and try to survive without each other - Shira in a convent and Roza on the run freezing and barely surviving in the woods.

You will be drawn into the lives of Roza and Shira and ache along with them.

THE YELLOW BIRD SINGS is a beautiful, but heart wrenching story. It is a story of bravery and endurance.

If you enjoy historical fiction, learning of musical prodigies, and books lyrically and beautifully written along with a story line that pulls you in, you will not want to miss this book.

It will stay with you long after you close the cover. 5/5

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. ( )

The Yellow Bird Sings by Jennifer Rosner made me cry. This book starts in Poland in WWII when the Nazis are rounding up the Jewish people. Roza hears the Nazis take her parents and then she flees with her daughter Shira. They go into hiding... In a barn. Whenever soldiers come, they hide under the hay. They spend over 400 days like that. Can you imagine having to stay quiet? Can you imagine having to keep your child quiet?? Roza does her best. Music is big on their family and Shira is a prodigy. So Roza keeps her entertained by music...but music that is played in her head. One day Roza has to make a decision that tears her world apart, and from that day on this story takes on a new life. I cried...alot. This book was so touching. Yes, there were parts that was hard to read, but in the end it was a good book! 3.5⭐


Thank you to Netgalley and Flatiron Books for this digital review copy in exchange for my honest review. ( )
