The vacuuming is done, kitchen is cleaned up, and laundry is started so.... book break!! 📚🥤
This book is fascinating!! Tells the story of several women in Germany before, during (and I‘m assuming after?) Hitler‘s rise to power. The events I learned about in history classes are told from their perspectives on the street 👍🏻

megzlynn I love Cheerwine but it is so hard to find where I live! 1d
Aims42 @megzlynn same where I live too! A friend brought some back from Ohio just for me ❤️ 1d
Reading_in_the_meadow @Aims42 wait, Ohio has Cherrwine now? I lived there for 23 years and never heard of it until I moved to NC about a decade ago. 23h

Aims42 @Reading_in_the_meadow I guess so, I‘m not sure what town they visited though, maybe a southeastern portion? There‘s a grocery store in Iowa where my parents live that has it, but only in glass bottles. I tried it in NC 2 years ago and I became an instant fan 🙌🏻There‘s no substitute for it, as I‘m sure you know too 😆 23h
Reading_in_the_meadow @Aims42 I have to say I'm not actually a fan 😬 But I know a lot of people are! 15h
Aims42 @Reading_in_the_meadow My husband doesn‘t really get why I love it 😂 To each their own, right? 3h

Hmmm, what other leader is a “loud, angry man”? 🤔 Reading this paragraph gave me pause because a “vast number of people” still exist in 2019😔

MarriedtoMrT That is a little too close to home. 5d

This word should be “trial” not “trail”. Ugh.

This book is otherwise lovely, but these kinds of errors irritate me.

rretzler I just read an ebook that has been out for a few years and it still had misspellings and grammatical errors. How had can it be to fix an ebook and update a file? How annoying! 1w

This was a wonderful novel! It‘s a much longer book than what I‘m used to so it took me a while but so worth it! The details the highs and lows for the characters and to find out the majority of them were real people...amazing! I am always amazed at the bravery of so many against such cruelty especially when their actions came with grave consequences. Overall a fabulous WWII historical fiction!

ModernMrsDarcy.com Summer 2019 Reading List

The Resistance Woman are Mildred Harnack, Greta Kuckhoff and Sara Weitz. These brave women waged covert operations against Hitler in Berlin. American Mildred and her German husband move to Berlin in 1929 just as Hitler was about to seize power. The book does a good job explaining how so many people got duped into following Hitler because they really didn‘t know what was going on until it was too late.

marleed I was engrossed in this book and was not expecting that. It gave me a perspective I hadn‘t read. 3w

I assumed this longish book would be lost in the many books of similar title and subject I‘ve read, but I wanted to give it a chance. I liked it - a lot. The history of residents caught up in the devolving of Germany through the 1930s and early 40s was well researched and intriguingly presented. I was engaged with the characters (most non-fictional) and the paths and beliefs that brought them together to resist hate as the norm.

rretzler Ooh-was it actually about average German citizens during the war? There are so few books like that, so I‘m always on the lookout. Most books seem to be about French or British citizens and sometimes American. 4w
marleed @rretzler Yes. It also had an American woman who moved to Germany with her German husband. Also a Soviet husband to German woman. They were people working on PhDs and how that world was impacted. Honestly, I was surprised to be so interested - it was an angle I had not anticipated. 4w
marleed @rretzler oh one more thing, you might want to read the afterward first even though you‘d know the fate of the characters. I think I would have liked to know which characters were non fictional. 4w
rretzler I‘m definitely going to read. Thanks for reviewing! 4w

Mehso-so

This one was a little too dragged out for me. Women in World War Two. A lot of detail, a long book, and not all of it added to the story.

Very thoroughly researched but a bit too wordy and long for me. A good story overall.

This story features four women and their families as they resist from the inside.

Where Resistance Women differs from other WW2 fiction is: the slower pace helped me to really FEEL the stripping-away of individual freedoms as the Nazis continuously made new laws undermining Jewish people and Germans. There are few action scenes; still, the last third of the book had me glued to the pages. Immersive + very very good. Thank you @WilliamMorrowBooks!

On a whim I decided to sign up as an Early Reviewer on LibraryThing. I only chose 2 books and figured my chances were slim at best. Found out I was selected for this one this morning. Woo hoo to new reading adventures!
