  • A different view

    This brought home how many countries were part of WWII. I always knew that Russia played a roll but had never read anything in regards to their occupation by Germany. Though the story is fictional it does bring home the universal suffering and loss that families went through during this time.

  • Sisters of war

    I just loved this book, what a vivid book that made me feel like I was right there. I loved the family dynamics in the story. I ate up every word of this story. A truly great historical fiction written by Lana Kortchik.

  • Sisters of War

    I found I became engrossed in this story from the beginning. The tragedy of war with its moments of hope and joy are so powerfully described.

  • A War Torn Family

    This was a very emotional and heartbreaking read. If I could give this book 6 stars I would. Once I started reading I wanted to read to the end. What a wonderful story of a families courage, love and survival in a hostile environment. Natasha and Lisa are two sisters in Kiev Ukraine. When the war starts events take place which put a wedge between these two inseparable sisters. With their older brother away fighting and the arrest of their father by the Gestapo the Mother and younger brother are caught between the two sisters in an emotional struggle. What comes next is so sad and heartbreaking as the family is persecuted by the Nazi army, friends, family and loved ones are lost to the war. The city of Kiev is under attack and burning. Every day they face fear, hunger and violence. This book was different because it was a WWII book set in Ukraine. The Russian people were being invaded by the Nazi German's. All the Jewish people in Ukraine were being eliminated and the Ukrainians were treated very badly. The German Army stole their homes, their food and their jobs. They were left with nothing, yet they still survived. The atmosphere was tense and troubling. Neighbors and friends would denounce anyone for a crust of bread. Gold, Silver, Clothing all was sold for just a small amount of food. Times were dire and the people were in distress. Why it is such a great story is that this family , through all the events, never lost their love for each other, their love of literature, and their ability to love and care for other's. I would definitely recommend this book. Thanks to Lana Kortchik, HarperCollins Publishers, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy in return for an honest review.
