  • Miss Graham’s Cold War cookbook

    A 5 is not a big enough number to rate this book. It’s at least a 10! From the minute I started to read, I was hooked, until I had finished it!! Such a fascinating story, I was not aware of the origins of the Cold War. I love when I get a good read based on real happenings, which educated me as well. I shall bectelling all my friends about this book....💜

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Miss Graham’s Cold War Cookbook.

    An interesting book, I learned a lot about post war life in Germany. Characters were well written. I found it a bit lengthy and it could have been shortened with no loss of enjoyment.

  • When WWll ended...

    “Miss Graham's Cold War Cookbook” takes place post-WWII at the beginning of the Cold War era. Ms. Celia Rees captured the essence of post war Europe. Cities completely destroyed, people sick from malnutrition and disease, lack of housing, refugee camps, black markets and corruption. Amidst all of this, SS / Gestapo officers and soldiers were shedding their uniforms, trying to blend in as refugees and trying to escape to South America, mainly Argentina. Mistrust and power struggles within the allied forces. The British, the Americans and the Russians, each one setting up their spies in each others camps... who do you trust? The main story follows Edith who is attempting to establish an education system for the children who survived the war. This is one of the few WWII Historical Novels that I have read that talks about Natzweiler-Struthof. I spent three years in Lahr, Germany. The Struthof was 1 hour away by car from where I lived. The place is incredibly beautiful and located in the Vosges forest. It’s difficult to comprehend the atrocities that took place there. At first, it was both a labor and transit camp through which many prisoners were sent to other Nazi concentration camps. It was a camp for people of the resistance movements and spies. However, as the war continued, it became a death and medical experiment camp. Four female British SOE agents were executed together on 6 July 1944. I found the story to be intriguing. However, the story is not fast paced and could use less characters. I found it a bit confusing, trying to keep track of who was who. It is impressive how incredibly brave these women were.

    Thanks for your feedback!
