Excerpt: "In many ways, Sarah Klassen's novel, The Wittenbergs, turns on the question of family history and just how heavy a burden one family's past can weigh upon its current generations. For the Wittenbergs, the family at the center of Klassen's text, this sometimes unacknowledged weight carries with it certain consequences. Only a reformation of sorts can set the family free to understand their history in new, more hopeful, ways."
