I am very fond of History, and this story, a fiction with such a realistic background looks so real as we know these dark events happened not so long ago... Like it says, it allows reader to "discover the truth through fiction". A book for everyone to be read, as anti-Semitism is growing up again. I couldn't give up until the very last page !
The questions at the end of the book "Digging deeper" is a good opportunity to teach kids or young people who are often ignorant of that period of time and make them facing the right questions.
I have always been an avid reader. A friend suggested this book to me and I was not quick to agree to read it. I didn't think I'd like the WWII setting. After the first few chapters the author ties the lives of the characters together, and I was hooked. I learned things I did not know I still needed to learn. My life was changed...and that does not often happen with a historical fiction book. This book, and the series, are wonderful...and this book inparticular holds it's place as my favorite all-time book!
Great reading!!! I have the whole series.. Hard to put down! Realistic history, yet highly informative & interesting!! Read this series first and then "The Zion Chronicles".. I will read again & then sell..Wish I could sell on this web site..
