I stumbled upon this book at our neighborhood little library - a wooden box in our nearby park where people exchange books. I hadn't read a book that was this interesting in a few years. It's historical fiction based on WWII times and 3 women - 2 characters based on real people, and the third a composite of Polish women in a concentration camp. Fascinating.

Thank you, I added this to my Amazon wishlist. They recommended Sarah's Key which is a book I've already read and seen the movie. It is excellent also.

Also from this time period, The Zion Covenant series by Brock and Bodie Thoene. These books follow a family from pre-war Europe through WWII.

I don't know why my original post got cut off so here's the rest of it.

Sorry if I hijacked your post Dana, stories from this era are some of my favorites.
