White Rose, Black Forest Reviews
Well done historical fiction about WWII
Good concept and great characters. The novel was extensively researched and the story was engaging. I highly recommend this excellent book
Happens to be the only book that intrigued me in months and of course, it's not out yet. I cry!
I do enjoy a well written WW2 story, so when I read about this book I had to snap it up! What can I say ? It was disappointing , the story sounded so promising, but I am sad to say it did not live up to it’s promise. It is superficially written, has rather shallow characters and just did not work for me.
I believe it is meant to be based on a true story, but there is little evidence of this.
The story of a German woman with anti-Nazi sentiments and and the American spy posing as a German soldier that she finds wounded in the snow and cares for in her secluded cabin. Would make a decent movie. The story moves along pretty well and the settings and characters are rounded out pretty well, but the dialogue is stilted and the romance contrived.
Engaging story about two young adults in WWII Nazi. Franka is in a remote area of Germany and has lost the will to live. She stumbles upon a downed airman which brings purpose back to her life. The final pages of the novel were filled with action. I loved that the story is based upon fact.
Some foul language.
White Rose, Black Forest was my Kindle First selection for February 2018.
Although World War II is one of my favorite topics to explore in literature, it had been a little while since I'd read a book about it. Maybe I've just not been in the mood for anything overly heavy lately, as books about WW-II Europe generally knock the wind right out of me and leave me feeling a mixture of macabre fascination and dumbfounded despair at the cruelties endured during that time.

White Rose, Black Forest
Wow! Loved this WWII book so much. Franka, a German Nurse, and John, an Allied Spy, had quite the adventure. I went with my husband on a Viking Rhine River Cruise last June and this story ends up in the Black Forest and Basel Switzerland which we were lucky to experience on our trip.
I loved this book. A really great read if you enjoy Historical Fiction as I do. This story is about a woman who finds a soldier unconscious in the forest during World War II. She goes to great deal of trouble to save him. They both help each other during this terrible time of the Nazi regime. This is the second book I've read by this author having read Finding Rebecca which I also enjoyed. Looking forward to reading more books by Eoin Dempsey. I highly recommend this book...
