The German Wife (by Debbie Rix) … not a warm fuzzy read

I am a fan of WWII historical fiction books. The story had a lot of potential, however, I did not care for any of the characters … from Annalise’s naivety to Hans’ single-minded focus on his research. I felt like the middle portion of the book just plodded along and didn’t keep my attention. It was difficult listening to the audiobook about the experiments at Dachau but this was not to be a warm fuzzy read. It was interesting to explore the choices the characters made and how they affected their lives in the future. I continue to be amazed at the cold feelings and lack of compassion the people who played a part in Hitler’s reign of terror demonstrated.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookoutre for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
