    The Child of Auschwitz

    I would rate this novel a solid 4-1/4 stars! As much as any story about the Holocaust is hard to read, this novel kept my attention and I finished this book in two settings! After reading this novel, my one thought through out this book was ...these people survived on pure luck and chance! There wasn't much added to this story that I haven't read in other books.... except a child born in Auschwitz and survived! I did enjoy this author ...her book is well researched and her style of writing kept me memorized from the first to last pages! I enjoyed her so much that I will look into more of her books in the future

    Fantastic read!

    I love World War II Historical Fiction and this book did not disappoint. This is the story of Eva Adami, her best friend Sofie Weis, Helga and Vanda who are all imprisoned in Auschwitz trying to survive the horrors of the concentration camp during World War II. It is told in a then and now format with then detailing Eva being a 21-year-old artist falling in love and eventually marrying Michal Adami, a concert violinist. This is a heartbreaking story that is a real page turner. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this fantastic book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys WWII Historical Fiction as it will not disappoint you.

    Heartbreaking with hope

    This is my first book by this author, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I will be reading more book by this author. She has a beautiful style of writing. It is full of details, but still with a good flow. to the story. I have read several books about the Holocaust and it is a subject that is hard to read about. It is heartbreaking, confronting and it shows humanity in it's worst, but also it can show hope and survival. This book grabbed me from the first sentence and didn't let me go for the entire journey. I had goosebumps while reading. Lily Graham focusses her story on the people in Auschwitz and not so much the horrors. It is there, but not in a lot of graphic detail. In flashbacks we get told the background story of the main characters and what brought them to this point and all their loss, hopes and dreams. It is a beautiful story.

    A powerfully moving book.

    My rating: 4.5 Stars Eva Adami is in Prague. But then the story goes back to 1942. She survived a very long and grueling train ride, with the worst possible treatment imaginable, Eva is about to begin yet another tragic chapter in her life. Eva is one of thousands of Jewish people being lined up for extermination. Dragged out of her home, her life, and the happiness she knew, her life will forever be changed. This story, and that last couple that I have read, have focused on what women suffered during that time. The Child of Auschwitz is one such story. For readers of this genre, or about this time in history, there is no need to repeat the many horrors these women experienced. Another woman highlighted in this book is Sofie. The story goes back to her past life occasionally. We read of her falling in love, mothering a child, Tomas, then losing her husband and all contact with Tomas. Eva and Sofia become very close and offer a tremendous amount of support to one another during their horrific trials. We meet other women who are forced to live together on the block. They did manage to become part of Kanada, a special camp, and thus were spared gassing. They had a lot of advantages, but were not spared much of the suffering and humiliation. Before Eva was dragged off to the camps she met and married. Blessedly she finds her love again, and they even manage to create a life between them. Eva struggles to keep her child alive, all while Sofie hopes to see her son again. Both Eva and Sofie are forced to face even more brutal and tragic trials. Despite the sadness... Despite the tragedy...This is a story of survival, of hope, of friendship, and of love. I cried more than once but I was left with a very full feeling in my heart at Eva's perseverance through it all. This was an amazing read, and as always, Lily Graham has done a stellar job. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
