I guess I expected more from this book. It was an easy read, too easy I guess for a Holocaust story. It just had a feel of a Harlequinn novel (which is not always a bad thing) but at $13 I would expect more substance. I frequently found the main character very frustrating. She was too "jumpy" to be working undercover and she made incredibly bad choices and took risks that unnecessarily put herself and friends/family in jeopardy.

Kommandan't Girl

This is a book primarily for highschoolers. It is fairly trite in terms of the writing style, and my book group gave it a thumbs down at a recent review. The story is a bit preposterous, and some of the author's storyline is not smooth. It is not suggested for a serious reader of the Holocaust.

When is love not enough?

Fast paced, well written study of how people survive in the most dire of circumstances. The heroine of this novel has many choices to make which compromise her heritage and who she ultimately is and becomes. Most enjoyable
