*Disclaimer: I received this book as an advanced reader copy, won via raffle.* Books about world war II have always been interesting to me, and this book was no exception. It was beautifully written and absolutely heartbreaking and mesmerizing to read the story of the group of women bonding in prison in Nazi Germany. I won't say much, at the risk of spoiling the book, but to anyone looking for a riveting story with strong protagonists and a whirlwind of emotions, I highly, highly recommend this book. Perhaps what was the most impactful was remembering that this is a true story, which until now had gone untold. Reading about their bravery, friendship, cleverness, and courage was an honor, especially considering how young they were, all of them just in their 20s. It was also astonishing to remember that one of the women was actually the author's great aunt, making the story just that much more impactful and personal.
