World War II historic fiction with all of the grey areas brought forth with a need to survive versus your own moral code. I want to give this book a good rating but the repeated use of ‘okay’ and the inability for me to connect to the characters means I rate it poorly. Another WWII book, that was amazing. And after only six weeks of marriage, her husband Jacob, a member of the Resistance, is forced to flee. Though I did like the way the author bridged between the two novels. Having been part of the resistance, Marta was taken by the Gestapo and tortured for information. This will help the reader get a background story on who Marta, the main character, is and a couple others mentioned in the book. Health This is another book I picked up because of the cover. It is nicely written and well researched, however what really annoys me is the poor attempt at Polish words and names. The Kommandant's Girl book. I knew nothing of the Polish resistance and the ghettos as described in this book and oh! You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition. The characters were likable. Another nitpick: despite the characters coming from different parts of the globe (Poland, England, US, etc.) Time travel is not the sole dominion of the fantasy genre. This was an historical fiction story that takes place just after WWII. A few of the plot points were somewhat predictable, but somehow that didn't detract from the book for me.

With an initial premise that could go any of several different directions, Emma is a newlywed, young, rather sheltered girl when her homeland is invaded by the Nazis. It's the story of a young Jewish woman, Emma Bau, set in Poland during the Holocaust. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. So – we have a not-so-unusual romance or flirtation in a time of war, and then the story starts to fail the premise. That in and of itself was appealing to me. The “resolution” at the end is both improbable and incomplete. But, there were plenty of good ideas brought forward in this story, and I was completely wrapped up in the reading to the end. The character from the second book experienced more pain and suffering repeatedly than I can imagine but also was allowed a break once in awhile, a "sweep you off your feet and knock you out" romance and in the end became a strong, powerful, successful woman.

Intriguing and engaging despite the holes in timeline and failure to actually develop the heroine will provide readers with an interesting story, but one that could be much more satisfying. Emma Bau, a shy librarian, escapes the city's Jewish ghetto with the aid of the underground resistance movement that Jacob, her activist husband, has already joined. The lying, the cheating to save yourself and your family. A childcare centre accused of leaving a child unattended in a bus for more than an hour has faced court. As with Kommandant's Girl, the author is fabulous at keeping the pace fast and tensions high. The reviews I read of this book were predominantly negative, and I found the book tough to get into. While I loved reading this book I couldn't escape the fact that all the way through I felt that I shouldn't. This title will be released on August 5, 2021.

I had an inkling of how things would turn out, but still there was enough excitement and a few surprises at the ending. Author Pam Jenoff met an elderly couple on a train who were both Holocaust survivors. For example, in the first few pages, the main character, Emma (not a Polish name at all, especially for those times, but I'll let that go because of her Jewish origin) calls the boy she is looking after "kochana", which means "loved one" when translated directly, however is also a term of endearment similar to "love/sweetheart". © 1996-2020, Amazon.com, Inc. o afiliados.
