  • World War II Historical White Rose

    The Traitor by V. S. Alexander is historical fiction story of a young woman‘s life that is based on facts set in Nazi Germany 1942 through 1949. It describes small group resistance to evil and how she and other members of various groups including the famous White Rose made a difference. Harrowing details and experiences most could never imagine. The Traitor is written with characters who come alive to the reader. Alexander’s book reads like a true story because of the authors extensive research, study and understanding of those who were a part of the resistance and historical documents. This important book helps us to remember the brave people who fought the evil of that was the National Socialist Party. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book. 5 Stars

  • Inspiring

    Stories about World War II have always fascinated me, especially those that are based in fact and tell the stories of ordinary people forced into extraordinary circumstances. Sometimes it seems like it was all of Europe. The Traitor by V. S. Alexander fits right into that category and I enjoyed it very much. Natalya Petrovich is just a student when things begin to get ominous in Germany. Her family comes from Russia but they have done their best to assimilate themselves into the German culture. However, as Natalya and her family – and many, many others – soon find out, assimilation for all isn’t part of the Master Plan. Purges and concentration camps appear, and many Germans just don’t understand how this can be and resolve to try to do something about it. Natalya joins the White Rose, the resistance movement of young Germans against the Nazi regime. Her job is to participate in writing and distributing a series of anonymous leaflets hidden in public places or mailed to addresses selected at random from the phone book denouncing the Nazi regime. Author Alexander does an excellent job of portraying the fear and danger, the dedication, the loss of friends and the betrayal of others. Thanks to One More Chapter Books Harper Collins for providing an advance copy of The Traitor via NetGalley for my honest review. I enjoyed it and recommend it. All opinions are my own.

  • Peaceful resistance

    historical-fiction, historical-places-events, historical-figures, Germany, resistance-efforts, danger, historical-research, WW2 This book dresses some ugly history in the finery of fiction. That's a good thing. Natalya stands as the everywoman of the German peaceful resistance known as the White Rose of underground defiance of the Nazis. Her family fled the predations of Russia coming to Germany and becoming citizens, but it all went from bad to worse as the Reich rose in strength and cruelty. She undertook hazardous tasks, tried to comfort the despair of others, and even found time for a little romance. The characters and their situations are all too believable as are the lessons from the past. The book is very moving. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A Mother Found

    This book was fascinating in its vivid description of the village in India, the many sites such as the bazaar, the Baptist church, and the Castle. It was also quite descriptive of the English village where sat Cedar Hall and where the orphanage once stood. It is a story of a mother's heartbreak, a child lost and finally the love between a daughter and her father. There was a lot going on and it kept the pages turning. I loved the characters, Connie, Sarah, and Anna. The story is rather sad, the ending happy and with a twist toward the end involving Connie. Sara's father's search for his birth mom, and Connie's secret she was finally able to let go of. The story of Anna was very sad. The story was well written, the book kept my interest to the end, and I would definitely recommend it. Thanks to Ann Bennett, Bookouture, and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review an advance copy of the book.
