City of Women


Book #54 Read in 2013
City of Women by David Gillham

This historical fiction book is set during the time of the Holocaust.  Sigrid is a German woman who ends up having an affair with a Jewish man and helping Jews escape the Nazis.  Sigrid is a hard character to like at first but I ended up liking her.  By the end of the book, she took control of her destiny.  The horrors of the war and the hatred were detailed well in this book.  The writing style was sophisticated.  All of the characters were flawed in their own way, which made them very realistic.  Overall, a good read.
