1 post | 1 read
Magda is born at the beginning of the 20th century, the illegitimate child of a maidservant who feels burdened with a daughter she does not want. The girl grows up to become an ambitious woman, desperate for love and recognition. When Magda meets Joseph Goebbels, he appears to answer all her needs, and together they have six children. Towards the end of the Second World War, Magda has become physically and emotionally sick. As she takes her children into the Fhrer's bunker, her eldest daughter Helga experiences an overwhelming sense of foreboding.

And in stark contrast to the cutesy YA fiction I just reviewed, there's this harrowing little book. At just over 100 pages this is a quick read, but an incredibly powerful one that I think will stay with me for a long time. It's also the first book I've read from Salt Publishing, and won't be the last (not just because I bought another two books from them at the same time...) Thanks for recommending this on The Readers, @SavidgeReads.
