Book Review: The Kommandant's Girl

small disclaimer: I knew the author about 20 years ago. We were sorority sisters in college. I haven't spoken to her since 1990, but picked up the book because a friend recognized her name.

This book is FANTASTIC! I couldn't put it down. I read it in 2 days -- which given how much time I get to read, really says something! The story is of a young Jewish girl, newly married, during the Nazi occupation of Poland. How she escapes facing the death camps is just a great story that keeps you wanting more. It even makes you think about choices and emotions - and what people will/can do in extreme circumstances. I've already pre-ordered her next book, not due out until May 1. I highly recommend The Kommandant's Girl.
