I was interested to read this book since I wasn't very familiar with the Auschwitz Trials. Though the trials are a key part of this book, the focus was not on the trials so much as on the way Eva's participation as a translator changed her relationships with everyone she held dear.

Overall this was an interesting read, but I do have a couple complaints. I couldn't figure out why a whole storyline was devoted to Eva's sister. It seemed unrelated and was just strange. I wasn't a fan of Eva's love story either. What did she see in Jürgen? They seemed really mismatched, couldn't communicate well, and in general didn't seem to enjoy each other's company. I'm not sure how I felt about the ending, either.

Thank you BookishFirst for the review copy of this book.
