  • Extraordinary, unforgettable, beautifully written

    Chrystyna Lucyk-Berger’s “The Woman at the Gates: Epic, heart-wrenching and gripping World War 2 historical fiction” is truly a story that lays hold on your heart, gripping so tightly as it struggles to beat. The Ukraine 1944, during WW2 this is the story of Ukrainian resistance fighters, caught in an uncertain world where are the choices between the evils fall on blurred lines, where a people fight for their homeland and unspeakable evils reign, yet they fight on. Antonia is independent, intelligent, and a young woman willing to do whatever it takes for those she loves and to fight for her country’s freedom. She is a professor by day and a resistance fighter by night, intent on saving those she loves and preserving her precious country and the life she has known and loved there. The authors research is impeccable. She pens well-rounded, believable, and very alive characters in this story. Her rich, visual and sensory prose crafts with immense skill a story that holds you in its grip from beginning to end. I have great respect for Antonia, her courage and her extraordinary strength. The plot is strong, compelling and the ending wasn’t exactly what I suspected. Based on a true story of the authors own family, this is an unforgettable, poignant story of love, hope, courage, betrayal, and of the power of human endurance during history’s darkest days. The story of extraordinary people whose courage and conviction saw them through the horrific horrors of war. I was reduced to tears more than once throughout the story. It was clear to see that it was written with the heart and soul of the author. Thank you so much Ms. Lucyk-Berger for this beautifully written, wonderfully told, unforgettable story. Thank you Net Galley for the chance to review an early release of this book

    Thanks for your feedback!
