Enjoyed the continuing saga of Rosa (from the books Iron Rose & Angels Round About). We hear and read a lot about the concentration camps from World War II, but I had never heard about the internment of Germanic aliens in England. Very interesting read.

More about life during WWII and how Rose was treated as an Austrian in England. True story and very interesting.

The final installment in the Rosa Edler epic - it was great to finally have everything come full circle, and see all the loose ends tied up. Really enjoyed these books.
