I loved this book because it tells 3 very different perspectives in World War II. There is the story of an American woman (based on a true story) who sends food and other necessities to France and becomes involved with trying to help people get to America. There is the story of a Jewish girl sent to Ravensbruck, a concentration camp for women, struggling to hold onto any hope. Lastly, there is the story of a female SS doctor stationed at Ravensbruck treating and experimenting on Jews. Based in parts on a true story, these three girls become connected during this tale of loss and hope in World War II.
A debut novel inspired by the life of unlikely World War II heroine Caroline Ferriday follows the experiences of a Manhattan debutante, who resolves to help upon learning of the atrocities at the Ravensbruck concentration camp; and a Catholic teen, who is swept up in the Polish resistance movement.
