book reviews

~I have been reading a lot of books from the Holocaust-era...sort of obsessively in fact. Since I didn't pay much attention in history classes, this has been eye-opening reading (obviously I knew what happened, but this has provided additional info/detail i.e. learning).

~I just recently finished TWO excellent books from this era and wanted to share them with you...

~The first one is The Kommandant's Girl and the sequel and second book is The Diplomat's Wife



~They were both EXCELLENT books that I could hardly put down. Give them a try. You won't be dissapointed.

The holocaust was not taught in my high school. I learned about it as an adult. I was totally amazed that such a thing could happen when I first learned of it. Thank you for the recommendations.

I have got to get the Diplomat's Wife! Just need to finish reading "Scream Free Parenting" and "The Fire" and the six other books on my nightstand.

Levonne-you are welcome.

Em-I would offer to send you Diplomat's Wife but I passed it to my mom...if you still need it when she's done, I'll be happy to mail it to you. :) I got it through the Goodreads.com swap...which is awesome by the way. ($4.00/book which is shipping cost...book is actually FREE)

Thanks for the book recommendations! I'm studying for my MA comp exam, and my Goodreads "to-read" list is long, but I love reading books that are recommended by others because I would hate to miss out on a great book! Thanks again :-)

I'd come across "The Diplomat's Wife" before, in my local bookstore and considered reading it...

I never realised, however, that it was the sequel to "The Kommandant's Girl". Glad to know I should actually start out with that!
