Best book about WW2 I have read. One of those books that you want others to read so you can discuss it.
This was a very good fictional book about Emma, a Jew, during WWII.
She lives in Poland and this story details her life before and after she is smuggled out of the ghetto. It relates how she and some relatives survive, and the sacrifices they must make and the dangers they must face.
Amazing read by a fantastic author. I have read this and the sequel to this book and both blew my away. I was so engrossed that I finished it in a couple days. I'd absolutely recommend to anyone, especially if you enjoy stories set in the WW2 time period. Very historically accurate.
Ok maybe its me but I really did not like the heroine in this book way to wishy washy,Is it wrong of me to actually like the Kommendant? the ending twist made him maniacal.(not believable yes he was supposed to be the villain} I did enjoy the secondary characters though. Overall they made the villains stupid and the heroine extremely lucky.I thought any of the consequences that happened to the characters as glossed over not realistically portrayed. I give this book a c+
An intriguing enough story line to keep you reading although a few of the scenerios are just a little too coincidental. Also the author needs to research more into the development of children. Anyway, all in all, it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it.
