Opening Sentence of the Day: Maps and Shadows
"Everyone has a story."
Maps and Shadows by Krysia Jopek. This is a novel based on the WWII experiences of the author's relatives, who were sent to Siberia from Poland during the war, then spent years drifting around the Middle East and Africa before reuniting and moving to America.
Everyone may have a story, but most are not likely to be as fascinating as this one.
