The School for German Brides (by Aimie K. Runyan)

A WWII historical fiction that leads you to believe it will be a different focus than what you normally read. The title and synopsis are very misleading. The majority of the book is NOT about school for German brides. You are about two-thirds into the book before the school is mentioned. And even then, it is glossed over. Three primary characters, Hanna, Klara, and Tilde, have three different viewpoints. It was interesting to see how each woman handled their situation during Hitler’s reign of terror. Of all three of the women, I felt so much emotion for Tilde. I was not deeply invested in the book and it fell flat for me.

Thank you to NetGalley and William Morrow & Company for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
