This‘s my #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge book for #Germany- & I much preferred the WWII German setting to the present day El Paso, TX one but I think it‘s tricky to set books in this time period, especially with them having ties to the Nazi party. I had hoped for something more here & I really didn‘t care for any of the modern storyline at all or the characters there! Looking forward to listening to something a bit more seasonal next! #AudioColoring

Although I‘m not usually a fan of books written about WW II, this was a tender look at the lives of two women who attempted to survive the only way they knew how during that horrid time in history. It paints a picture of Germans who did not follow the ideology of the time and how they learned to maintain a somewhat ordered life. The story moves quickly and the characters are well developed.

Audiobooks and I have been in a fight lately. There haven‘t been any that have really grabbed my attention, and thus I‘ve been deep diving into podcasts like crazy. But I got this book as a Kindle deal add-on and I listened to it all in two days. Historical fiction is always an excellent audio choice for me. While this book was a bit predictable, overall, I enjoyed it, and it was a nice way to get back into the audiobook game!

AlaMich Audiobooks are hard! Getting a book that you would enjoy, read by a narrator who is a good fit for that book...it‘s an art, really. I DNF a LOT of audiobooks. 8mo

I got to this book last year and was really quite pleased with the story arc and viewpoints of German nationalists during WWII, a wayward reporter with family issues and her American fiance of Mexican descent who is a border patrol officer in Texas. If you're looking for a great mid century war novel, drop the $2 and you won't be disappointed!!!

Set in Germany during WWII, this is the story of Elise Schmidt, the baker's daughter. It is a story about tragedy & regret, yet with hope & love interspersed, and lots of mention of baked goods! I craved gingerbread, cinnamon rolls, and freshly baked bread with cherry jam while I was reading this, but the closest I got was bread with raspberry jam. 😂

There are also recipes at the end of the book - I love a book with recipes!! 🍞

kstadt929 This sounds like a book I NEED to read!! 12mo

A powerful story about gray areas in life, love and especially war. This book parallels a family of bakers who are German nationalists during WWII, a Virginian transplant to Texas running from the truth about her father's depression and an American citizen of natrualized Mexican parents who works for border patrol. A striking book with infuriating characters but mostly in the sense that they're very relatable.

Quirkybookworm Love the book! 1y

This book had been on my to read pile. The concept was good. I loved the wartime story as well as the present day one. However, parts of the connection were lost to me. I also wish the author took a bit more time developing the “after”. The pages covering 1945 to 2007 passed quickly. Overall I liked it and it would have made a great book club read.

Two women from different eras and times, 60 years apart, face similar challenges: love that survives relationships, moral decisions, and choices made during war times. It's when their paths cross at last in early 2000s in Texas that alters and defines their lives.

So, how was this book? It packs quite the emotional punch at the end -- if I didn't quite sob, my eyes leaked well over many of the last few chapters. War sucks, evil is evil, and yet we continue to be inspired by the tales of goodness that can happen within the construct of humanity.
