    • This book was designated as our book club's next read and though I was excited to read it, as I had read several good reviews, I kept putting it off as I felt that I knew, to some level, the horror of the subject-matter. Hence as I started to read it I was very uncomfortable, but as the book progressed I felt it a compelling read into the reality of human nature. I gave it five stars rather than four, as I felt four stars did not do it justice.
    • Immediately reading the first few pages of this book, I was dismayed and increasingly skeptical of its written quality. While the real lives depicted in this story deserve awe and merit for their survival of such a catastrophic period, the portrayal of the story lacks depth.I was surprised to see so many positive reviews! A few others have been able to concisely pinpoint the problem with the writing - mainly the book is a narrative shell that primarily glosses over the struggle of surviving such dire circumstances to focus on a love plot with little dimension. Elementary prose and cheesy one-liners dominate this novel.At the very least, I appreciate the attempt to bring light to such a unique, real-life love story....
    • I have read many books on WW II and the Holocaust. I have visited 5 Concentration Camps and Yad Vashem in Israel. I am a Catholic woman who volunteers as a docent in a Museum of Jewish Heritage in Cleveland, Ohio. This book is realistic, touching, frustrating, yet hopeful. Ms. Morris has generated a remarkable work of chronological accuracy with a humanistic love story at a time when hope was not existent. Good read. Thank you.
    • A full 5 stars for this flowing factual literary work which “brings” Lale and Gita’s heart rendering love story into a pragmatic realistic accountable unputdownable read.The abhorrent disgrace and disgust of the holocaust cries out “lest we never forget”, which our retribution portrays in these stories being retold and remembered from generation to generation. The Jews will proudly survive and our voices will be heard in unity.My husband and I have walked through Auschwitz and Birkenau - a chilling icy tour of a deathly historical event in history which is incomprehensible albeit remembered.
    • I thought I knew something of the war, the camps and what it was like , this book gave a new insight , the reality of surviving on a daily basis ...there are no words for what happened in those camps ...those that survived and those that did not are all hero’s..there bravery is astonishing ...
