  • A compelling read

    This was a well-written novel with a unique theme. It was very interesting to see characters display traits and behaviors the opposite of what one would expect. The German protagonist who operated a factory, during World War II, providing war-related materials to the Third Reich using slave labour, displays an unexpected motivation and uncharacteristic behaviour. The English officer who you would expect to be a high-minded liberator pursues her with vengeance in mind and treats her with physical cruelty, just like the enemy whose actions he decries. I found the story fascinating and very original.

  • Compelling and suspensful

    A well written, engrossing and compelling story set Germany in the immediate aftermath of WWII during British occupation. Clara, is a former heiress of a wealthy industrialist family who ran a factory supplying war materials to the Third Reich. Now using another identity, she is on the run from a British officer determined to find and arrest her, while she continues to look for her close friend and young son who have disappeared. She meets Jakob a former soldier now black marketeer and enlists his help as they draw closer to each other sharing their insights and guilt over what had occurred under Third Reich rule. The story is fast paced and suspenseful with twists and turns and would highly recommend it.

  • The German Heiress

    This is an unusual approach to what must have been a moral dilemma for many Germans in post conflict Europe. I find it hard to know how I might have reacted given the propaganda, the reality of slave labour and the need to survive. I found the story of several different survivors presented in this book fascinating and it kep me turning the pages right to the end.

  • It Leaves The Reader Thinking

    I thoroughly enjoyed The German Heiress. I was left thinking about choices, those made by the characters and what I would have done in their place. Nothing is "cut and dry" in this novel. Hats off to Anika Scott.
