THE MUNICH GIRL by Phyllis Edgerly Ring

Over the years many books about WWII have landed in my lap. I thought there couldn’t possibly be another avenue to look at this war. Until now. This is a hard-to-put-down book, giving another viewpoint of the well-known, but not much known about person, Hitler’s wife, Eva Braun. (She is rarely, if ever, referred to as his wife.)

Yet, she is only a small part of the story, the part entwined with Anna and her mother, the every day part that we all live. The story blends those who were inside Germany, but not followers of Hitler, and the Allies who came from outside Germany to defeat him.

There is so much going on in this fictional story that reads like it is true, probably because of all the detailed research the author conducted and the personal feeling she brings to the page. There are surprises to unwrap. Nothing is predictable, which makes the story even better. I LOVE THIS BOOK! And it’s a book that I will re-read.

  1. Speechless (rare) with gratitude. DEEP gratitude. I will say, Arlene, that yours has made my 60th review at Amazon, for this work published on my 60th birthday last fall. And your insight makes the gift extra sweet.
