  • A story that will leave you breathless!

    "The soldiers moved quickly, separating mothers and children, the old from the young, the able from the not." "There’s no emotion. There’s no anger. We’re nothing to them. Their indifference is more dangerous than hatred." They find each other amidst a world in flux.  She knows it can't happen, he knows nothing about her except that he loves her.   Inevitably, their paths lead them to their vastly different destinies.   Irrevocably lost to each other.   Yet always in each other's hearts. I had to keep reminding myself that this is fiction.   But it is fiction with a huge dollop of truth, of facts, and of history.   But the scarier part, the part that fills me with foreboding, is that this historical fiction could very well be an account of the world we live in right now.   There are parallels to be drawn from every chapter. "I do know what revenge looks like, and it looks like more of the same. I don’t know what justice is. Unless it lies in keeping the memory of what was done alive so that it never happens again." The inexorable trajectory their separate lives take as they each battle the demons of both their past and present lives, is an absorbing tale for all times. Masterfully written, this book is a must read! [Many thanks to NetGalley / Bookouture and the author for an Advance Reader Copy of this book.   The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ]

  • Spellbinding!!

    I absolutely fell in love with this book. My heart will remember Hannah and Felix forever. The telling of this story pulled me in and I didn't want it to end. I would love for this story to continue with a part two.

  • Historical Fiction at its best!

    This story begins in Berlin in 1941 where Felix, a mischling and a printer's apprentice lives with his parents. Inge is wealthy and is about to enter into an arranged marriage to a wealthy, older physician. Shortly before the wedding, Inge's best friend, Liesl talks her into going to a dance for one last chance to have some fun. At the dance, Felix and Inge meet, dance and share a few kisses and they both fall madly in love with each other. They meet one more time before she marries and Felix and his father are deported to a work camp. The book toggles between Felix's struggles in the prison camp and his life after the liberation and Inge's life as a Nazi physician's wife. The story spans from 1941 to 1956 in Berlin. This was a very emotional and heartbreaking read at times and it was hard to put down. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this fantastic book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves WWII Historical Fiction books.

  • The Fortunate Ones

    This book explores the other side of the holocaust from the perspective of people who survived. It also looks are the personal cost of that survival in ways that show how deep the ideology was rooted in the minds of those who embraced and promoted it. Deception plays a big part in it ... and the final chapters show how hard it can be to get beyond the trauma. The Fortunate Ones survived, but at what a cost

  • A very sad story beautifully told

    Enjoyed reading this book. The author told two stories that were joined together. Very artfully done.
