Not Our Kind: A Novel
One rainy morning in June, two years after WW2, a minor accident brings Eleanor Moskowitz and Patricia Bellamy together. Their encounter seems to be created by fate. Eleanor, a teacher, needs a job, and Patricia’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Margaux, who is recovering from polio, needs a private tutor. Though Eleanor and Patricia have lived far different lives, they are brought together by one small bit of fate. It would only be the start of a string of events that could only be explained as a domino effect.
Personally, I enjoyed Not Our Kind. The story was told from the eyes of two very different people with very different backgrounds and life experiences, as well as views of New York City. The timing of the story, in my opinion, fits well with the story, especially with the recovery from the war, and, for Not Our Kind, the main focus of recovery was on how others viewed certain groups of people. As noted, throughout Eleanor’s experiences as a Jewish person after the war, many would judge her if they found out her heritage.
