The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck
"For the first half of this book I was rather unimpressed. The premise is interesting and it's the first book I've read about WWII from the POV of Germans, but the writing seemed elementary and the characters weren't compelling. My opinion changed..." Read more of this review »
