White Rose, Black Forest Reviews
This is a story about an American spy and a Germany nurse who's paths cross during the WWII. It's a very unlikely pair with a desperate and dangerous mission....
This was a good read and a page turner, if you enjoy this gender, then this is for you.
I wanted to like this book. The story was compelling and from a fascinating POV but the dialogue..., oh the dialogue. Jack and Franka's interactions were stilted and without emotion. The dialogue was flat. I never believed the two characters fell in love because their interaction was emotionless. Bizarre.
Shadows of My Father
This is what my father did during WWII. And yes, this is what it was like, you went in with no one but yourself to depend upon and knowing that America denied knowing you if you got caught. These were the true heroes, but they knew no medals waited in the wings for them no matter how brave and strong they were. After all, they didn't exist!!
Didn't reach any heights. The heroine was talented, brave and beautiful. The hero was strong, clever and handsome. They reveal their pasts. Evade the Gestapo to scape to Switzerland. A bit hackneyed. It even had a "Dear John" letter.
This was free for Prime members on Kindle, so why not? Maybe I'll read it one day.
Another bland/generic WW2 narrative.
If you love historical fiction, you’ll definitely enjoy reading this story! It’s a bit on a slower-pace side (a bit like All The Light We Cannot See, if you read that one) so if you’re into a fast-moving plot, you’ll only see some major action in the very end. However, for me personally, it worked in this particular case as it helped me better connect with the characters and get to know them and, what’s more important, their personal stories and secrets behind their actions. I particularly enjoy ...more
Another great kindle first book that I found difficult to put down. My only complaint is that I could have done with the conclusion of the book being a little longer as I just wanted to read about these characters a little longer, and it just felt a bit rushed at the end. Not enough to ruin the book, but I think a little more detail at the end would have made it even better.
