    WWII Historical Fiction at its best!

    I absolutely loved this book! This is really different from the usual WWII Historical Fiction books that I love to read. The story starts out with Evelyn Taylor-Clark who is in her 90s and in an assisted living facility being visited by her Power of Attorney niece, Pat. Pat is in the process of disposing Evelyn's possessions and comes across some pictures in a biscuit container that she does not recognize. Evelyn seems to have dementia, or does she??? The book proceeds in a then and now format where it takes us back to Evelyn's early life when she is married to Hugh who is in the service in 1939. There are lots of twists and turns in this truly fascinating book and it definitely is a page turner. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this great book that I highly recommend to anyone who loves Historical Fiction.

    A wonderfully surprising read!

    Amidst the heartache and devastation of World War II, Evelyn Taylor-Clarke makes a promise to her husband and to herself. Decades later, she keeps it. By all appearances, Evelyn is just another nonagenarian, slowly fading into the shadows of dementia. No one knows or even suspects that her mind is as sharp as the pencils she keeps ever by her side . . . pencils she was trained to use for much more than crossword puzzles. When her niece uncovers a passport in another name, mysterious photographs, and a collection of guns, Evelyn must call upon her wartime training to keep hidden the secrets she has kept for so long. Unfolding in split time, Evelyn’s—Eva’s—story alternates between the war years and present day. I love the interspersing of letters to her husband, giving readers a unique glimpse into her motives and motivations. Suzanne Goldring introduces readers to the lesser-known aftermath of World War II in Germany, a time when perhaps everything wasn’t quite so black-and-white as we would like to believe. My Name Is Eva will challenge you to look past the gray hair and the wrinkles and wonder at the lives of those we too often so easily dismiss. A fabulous read! *I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

    A startling read

    ‘You can’t pretend you don’t know anything about the guns,’ hisses Pat. ‘I’ve looked all through those cases. They’re full of your stuff. There’s clothes, documents, and passports. You’ve got to tell the police where the guns came from.’ ‘Well, dear, I would if I could remember.’ Evelyn Taylor-Clarke, is a surprising woman. On the surface, she seems like an even-tempered and respectable ninety-something-year-old woman who does crossword puzzles in the Forest Lawns Care Home, but her past holds unsettling secrets. Evelyn, or Eva, as she called herself when working in Germany after the war, lost her husband under unimaginable circumstances and sets out to avenge his death. The events told in present and past unfold into a heartbreaking and remarkable story about courage, heartbreak and what a woman will do for the love of her life. This startling read will transport you into the harsh reality of post-war Europe and throw you back to the present with secrets kept for 70+ years. Recommend highly. Thank you to Ms. Goldring for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

    My name is Eva

    What a beautiful story, very cleverly written. The twist and turn of time was ingenious. My mother is in a care home and looked after so well, she is so like Eva , still a highly intelligent woman at the age of 96, it could have been written about her. Very believable and beautifully written.

    Nice

    To me it wasn’t a spectacular WWII read. The switch from one year to the next bothered me. It was nice ready what happens after a war. Happy Evelyn had her revenge.
