What a phenomenal book this was! I have read quite a few books on the topic of the Holocaust, but this is by far the absolute best book of it's kind I have ever read. What makes this book even more distinguishable is the fact that it is a True Story, every fact, every event, every chapter all really happened. It's a history book, written in a novel form, and an absolute must read. I feel honour to have read this amazing story.

I'm about halfway through this book, and so far, this must be one of the best Holocaust books I have ever read. It tells the true story of a father and son that survived the Holocaust. The entire book is extremely well researched and every word is based on actual events. An absolute must-read for any Holocaust book fan.

A very interesting book, that was well written with a great plot twist. This book kept me guessing and trying to "figure it out" right until the end.

Thoroughly enjoyable book. It is not your typical WWII / Holocaust book, but rather a story about two people lives during WWII, and how the smallest act of kindness can have the largest impact. Beautifully written book.

This book is both heart warming and heart wrenching, all at the same time. One starts one with a faint dislike for the main character, Eleanor. The story moves that feeling to a strong "falling in love", and before you know it, your heart is broken. But, like any great story, the ending leaves you wanting more...
I truly enjoyed this book!

Cathythoughts Me to ! I hope she writes more books 👍🏻... must check 3w
Megabooks Such a good book! 3w

One of the most surprisingly, brilliant and wonderful books I've read in a long time. This book is truly a "page turner" and I could not wait to get deeper into the lives of each character. A beautiful and interesting storyline, wonderfully written. This one will stay with me for quite some time.

BeckyB I just finished this one as well. It was sooo good! 3w
Yoricke_SouthAfrica @BeckyB I've recommended this book to three of my friends and I keep thinking of Kya! 3w
BeckyB @Yoricke_SouthAfrica OMG, yes! I was having a conversation at with some friends that also read it and said I keep thinking about her and having remind myself that it was just a book. 3w
Yoricke_SouthAfrica @BeckyB I'm not going to lie, I'm almost done with my next book, and the Marsh Girl is still on my mind. So far, this has been my favourite book for 2019! 3w

What a wonderful surprise, this book was. I absolutely loved and enjoyed every word I read. It is a very detailed, thoughtful and smartly written book that will leave you wanting more. I'm still on a "Circe-High". Wow!

ImperfectCJ I loved this one, too! The audiobook is fantastic, and now I want to read the print book. 1mo
Yoricke_SouthAfrica @ImperfectCJ I started with The Song of Achilles (actual book), which is apparently the pre-book to Circe. It was also a brilliant book. I can highly recommend it as well. 1mo
ImperfectCJ @Yoricke_SouthAfrica I read (and loved) Song of Achilles, too, in ebook format. Funny, I hadn't thought of it as a pre-book to Circe, but if you look at the Trojan War/The Iliad as a precursor to The Odyssey, the Song of Achilles-Circe progression makes sense. 1mo

Yoricke_SouthAfrica @ImperfectCJ I read it in that order on guidance from book groups, and found the referencing to the Trojan War and Odysseus' role in the war in Circe quite useful (especially as I read it back-to-back). Both books are definitely books I will read again. I think I might have discovered a new love for Greek mythology. 1mo
ImperfectCJ @Yoricke_SouthAfrica My children love mythology (Greek, Roman, Norse...whatever they can get their hands on), so I've been exposed to a fair bit through them but have just been getting into it for myself recently. I didn't realize how complex and multi-faceted Greek mythology is. So many intertwining layers. 1mo
CarolynM I was surprised by how much I liked it too🙂 1mo

One of the best WWII, historical fictional books I have read. This book and the characters will stay with you long after you finished the last chapter. Exceptionally well written.
