    Historical Fiction WW II Berlin

    Berlin in 1939 isn't a safe place for Jewish people to live. Life changes quickly for Amanda Sternberg, her husband Julius, and their two daughter's Viera and Lina. Amanda owns her family book shop, and her husband Julius is a respected cardiologist. The Germans burn down the book shop and Julius is sent to a concentration camp. Julius had been worried about his families safety for sometime, he has secretly saved a large sum of money and has made plans for them to leave. A parent of one of his patients agreed to provide the opportunity for Amanda to flee Germany and she has to leave quickly and has no time to dwell on what will be her husbands fate. Desperate to save her daughter's they leave Germany, and go to France. Amanda has a chance to save her daughter's, to send them to Cuba and a ship called the St Louis, she decides her youngest daughter Lina is too young to make the journey and only sends her eldest daughter Viera.. Part of her husbands plan was for Amanda to go to France, to stay with his friends widow Claire and her daughter Danielle. Once Amanda reaches France life is not easy, she misses Viera and she has to come to terms with the death of her husband in the concentration camp, her future and her daughter's lives have been changed forever. She writes letter's to Viera, every letter is returned unopened and she has no idea what happened to her daughter and if she made it to Cuba? Amanda and Lina are eventually taken from Claire's house to a concentration camp and Amanda will do anything to make sure her youngest daughter is safe. In France, the German's round up all the people in the village, all the women and children are taken to a church in Oradour-Sur-Glane and the church is set alight by the German SS. Lina is one of the lucky children to survive and the book is about what happens to her after the fire. New York in 2015, Elsie Duval receives a call from a woman who explains that she has letters written by Amanda to her daughter all those years ago and the shock causes her to have a heart attack. Ida Rosen and her daughter Anna deliver letters written to a girl called Viera by her mother almost 70 years ago. They fly to New York to deliver them to the person to a woman who they believe might be Viera and is she? The Daughter's Tale, it takes you on a heart breaking journey from Germany, France, Cuba and New York. It's a story about tragedy, sacrifice, betrayal, secrets, a mother's love for her daughter's, and about tough choices people had to make during WWII. Not only for themselves, for their families and how it effected others. I really enjoyed reading The Daughter's Tale, yes it's very sad, it's based on a true story and so many people never spoke about what happened to them during the war. They moved on with their lives as best as they could and you can understand why it was very difficult for them to be confronted by their past and not even their own family knew what had happened to them during this awful war. I gave the book five stars and I loved the book.
