“Making a Rose After the Diaspora” by Eva Ross is an intimate look into a woman’s lifelong journey of overcoming adversity.

Born in Austria in 1929, Ross enjoyed a pleasant childhood until the Nazis invaded Austria. Fleeing to Uruguay with her family, she strived to create a life of joy, success and love while dealing with tragedies, like the death of her father.

The book provides readers with a post-war voyage to current day that the author hopes will serve an inspiring tale of overcoming life’s challenges.

“All lives are unique,” Ross says. “I wanted to share my story to show that there is always the possibility of coming out ahead.”

Ross hopes the book will become a tool to spark conversation with younger generations about World War II and the struggles of Jews in Nazi Austria.
