SO GOOD!!

FULL REVIEW 1/14.

A whirlwind pre-war romance filled with love and hope was dashed when Hans was forcibly sent to Dachau by the Nazi Party to do research and testing on the prisoners.

THE GERMAN WIFE is well done, heartbreaking, based on true characters, and a book that revealed what went on during the time at Dachau Concentration Camp.

For historical fiction fans and women‘s fiction fans. 5/5

Libby never lies…we don‘t tell lies in this house.

Some intense reading, but very good with all the twists, secrets, and one very manipulative character.

So very good...I hope you get to read this book. 5/5
