About the Book:
The Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their Polish farm to a labor camp. Separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and her husband Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules–and the consequences for disobeying them–Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.
But then Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear–but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.
This is a long book that is hard to put down. Such a hard subject to read about and I cannot imagine how hard to would be to write about. Besides the torture from the Germans there was personal issues for Natia and Teodor to overcome.
Natia and Teodor plus their family is taken from their home in Poland and brought to Germany to work for the Germans and or be prisoners of them. The time period is set during the war during the 1940’s. Natia and Teodor is separated but find a way to connect through song.
This is a very inspiring book, if you want a book that is hard to put down this is the book for you. Even though this is fiction we know that how bad people were treated at that time. The war is unfortunately a part of history.
I received an advanced copy of the book from NetGalley through the publisher. I was not required to write an review review. This is my own opinion.
