There is so much Holocaust fiction that already exists out there, and while I do think each and every one is important, there are times when they all start to blend and feel like the same story told in a different way. I am hopeful that that will not be the case with this one. While it's not *quite* based on a true story, the author implies at the start that the story is loosely based on a woman who did exist and the experiences that many women had post world war. I think this is a story that presents a unique perspective to the already existing 'genre' (if I can call Holocaust fiction a genre?), and I'm curious to find out where it leads.
On a negative (and entirely superficial) note - I was not a fan of the font style and the way it was sort of laid out (with the blue titles). It felt like something downloaded from the internet or something that was typed up in a Word doc and sent off. I hope that when it's all said and done, it has a quality look and feel about it.
