The book is two parts (each hopefully about 25000 words) and is based off Anne Frank
Part 1: In the book (written from Joseph's perspective, as if he is talking to us), Joesph is about to be gassed at Aushwitz. When he enters the gas chamber, G-D pauses time and reverses it for one year so Joseph and his family (wife Rebecca, daughter Annabelle or Anna for short, and son Isaac) can survive the Holocaust. It's one year before Joseph's death and they are now hiding in an attic. Joseph decides to leave the attic with his family so a smuggler agrees to smuggle him to Palestine. But the smuggler also brought with him a Black Muslim family (one daughter, a feminist named Avita) and Joseph is convinced the Muslim father was his best friend in Auschwitz and knows that his best friend should be Aushuwitz, not escaping to Palestine also .
The rest of the part 1 covers the families journey being smuggled to Palestine. First they leave Poland to Soviet Union, then travel down to a port at the Black Sea to Turkey , through Turkey, to the Mediterranean sea, and then to Palestine. Through the journey, Anna and Avita's growing friendship is mentioned a lot.
Part 2: After getting to Palestine, the book shifts to 2004, now written from Annabelle's perspective (essentially a long epilogue). Annabelle and Avita are best friends. After the Israeli war, Avita's family moved to Jordan and then Avita goes to college in America, becoming an American citizen and the first female secretary of state (similar to Madeline Albright), where she tries to broker a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine. Anna is a school principle in Israel and her diary that she left while escaping chronicling her life becomes a world wide best seller. Isaac is dentist (still deciding his fate). But once a year, the three children go together, but now with their own children, to Israel and Jordan to visit their parents graves, and the book ends as all of them place rocks on Avita's parents' graves in Jordan, showing how despite different backgrounds, they remained close.
Now my question: Given this summary, Should I reference part 2 in my query?I am concerned because it reveals the ending of part 1?
