    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.

    Enjoyable!

    Love any stories involving people living through WW2. Nice change to read a German's story.

    Didn't want it to end....

    Great story within a story. The Baker's Daughter has heart, intrigue, hiztory and a sprinkle of romance. I coudn't put it down.

    More than I expected

    Reading the synopsis for this book, I was interested in it right away. I love history, and have read a great many books revolving around WWII, but never one from a German person's perspective. I think people forget that not every German in the days of the war were Nazi's, nor did they agree with what was happening. But when faced with life or death, you don't know what one will do. I love books with a back and forth history, and also as many characters as this had. Prior to this book, I had never known about the Lebensborn program, or the aftermath of that. I loved Elsie's character, and can relate to her wanting to leave the home she knew and not return, but still keep pieces of it with her, in her case the new bakery. All in all, I was just really impressed with this book, and will likely read it again in the future. Thank you.

    The Baker's Daughter

    Enjoyable fictional read of war torn Germany. While fictional, it contains many factual accounts that spurred me to research more about them. I did not enjoy the modern day, romance story as much but endured it to get back to the Germany saga.
