I really enjoyed this book. I love reading historical fiction and this book talked about something that I never have read about and that was the Resistance. I think the book moved with great speed even thought the ending did not do the ending justice I wanted to know more. I wanted to know what happened so I guess I hope she writes another book to put my mind at ease with the main character.

firs of all sorry for my english - its not my native language. thats true - i couldnt put down that book... but it just made me angry to be honest. author made so much historical mastakes! for example - Poland was fighting with Germans for a month, not for two weeks (like France). Emma/Anna is buyng oranges or drinking orange juce all the time - dureing war in Poland it was almost impissible to buy bread - what about oranges!!! author is writening also about fridges - first fridge in Poland was made in 1956!so long after the war... next thing - the Resistance movement - the book says that there was only Jews fighting for freedom, what about the Poles? in the book ther is only one polish freedom fighter and many Jews. in reality it was just opposite. i understeand that its kind of historical fiction but its just sooo unreal that it hurts, especialy that Pam Jenoff was vice consul in Cracow - she should study some more history beafore writening that book. shame...

    This book was recommended by one of the staff. Glad I took it.

    This book was a great read. I was able to read it and not worry about setting it down and not be able to pick up where i left off. I really enjoyed this.

    Another good story

    If you like this story, you've got to read My enemy's Cradle by Sara Young.

    Could have been so much more

    I liked this book, but felt that it was too short. There were so many places where the author could have expanded on the plot and provided more character development. The interaction between the kommandant and his assistant could have progressed at a slower pace, adding more tension and excitement to the relationship. Having their relationship continue, would have provided much more for the plot. But instead the novel stopped rather abruptly leaving me wanting so much more. I read the follow up to the book - The Diplomat's Wife and it rarely touches on the main characters from this book. I still give the book 4 stars, because it kept my attention and it was interesting.

    3 1/2 stars

    Although i think the novel is well written, no one should expect it to be a literary masterpiece. the plot moves along smoothly, but lacked good character development and emotional depth (especially the male characters-the Kommandant, Jacob, etc.). There were also too many coincidences, which made me ask repeatedly "seriously?" It was quite captivating from the beginning, but the ending was a bit too rushed and left me feeling cheated (even though I read The Diplomat's Wife first by accident, it did not interfere with my thoughts regarding this). I would have definitely given it a higher rating if the ending was not so one-note.

    An interesting read and will take you away from current times. I look forward to reading more Ms. Jenoff's books, I think she can only get better.
