All But My Life: I had to keep putting it down because it made me weep. I saw Gerda Klein on Oprah and bawled through that as well. She proved that the most terrible things can happen and you can still go on.


Here is a list of some WW II fiction books that I have enjoyed:
The Paris architect - Charles Belfoure
The Guernsey literary and potato peel pie society - Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
Sarah's key - Tatiana de Rosnay
Those who save us - Jenna Blum
My enemy's cradle - Sara Young
The girl in the blue beret - Bobbie Ann Mason

Beth Leintz

I DID read The Nightingale and really enjoyed it and was amazed by it. Ordinary people living through extraordinary circumstances. I've read All But My Life, also, and will check out Auschwiz and After.


Read this and loved it. I have read most of the ones listed by Brenda (did not read My Enemy's Cradle) and enjoyed them all. Added these you just listed to my Goodreads list of books I want to read and was able to recommend one of the two for my library to get. Unfortunately the other one is showing not available (for epub). Thanks for the recommendations.


I have not read this book by Kristin Hanna but I have others by her and enjoyed them. Many years ago I read return to Auschwitz by Kitty Hart and it has always stayed with me ike a black cloud. It was a sad time in history.
