    Mixed Feelings

    I have mixed feelings about this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the parts which took place during the war years and despite the story having only one author, it felt like the parts of the story which took part in the present were written by a different person. The writing which covered the war years was wonderfully poignant . The reader really got a sense of how difficult it was for ordinary Germans to see what was happening in their own country during the war and the author was so successful in helping us to feel their repulsion and fear. I thought that part was brilliant but the part of the story which took place in the present felt immature and irrelevant and in my opinion could have been left out of the book entirely.

    Maker's Daughter

    The book starts slowly but the next thing you know you can't put it down. A intimate look at history during WW II.

    An interesting look at WWII

    A family of Bakers in Germany with 2 daughters. One is a concubine with the SS by choice but has a disabled son this son is disposed of and the sister has problems dealing with this. The younger daughter is living at home and helping her parents but has her own problems with the SS. It takes us to the end of the younger daughters death and how much your life can change. the constant is the bread making. Good story
