    For WWII fiction fans, this is a must read....

    I love reading WWII fiction and have been a fan of the Thoenes's series for years. Tricia's account of what happened in Austria during that era and the atrocities of the concentration camps is compelling. I visited the Holocaust Museum in DC in 2003 and reading her novel was like going back for a visit to the rooms with the chilling history of death and torture. Though not grossly graphic, she gets the truth of the sadism and inhumane thinking of that era across without sounding preachy. Also, the plot kept my interest and the characters were well developed. I found it to be very true to life. She did a great job weaving a fictional tale around a true life account of someone else's suffering. I keep thinking about the story after I've read it and that is unusual for me. From Dust and Ashes (first in the series) also sticks with me, but Night Song surpasses even that wonderfully written story. I can't wait for her third book to come out.

    great read!

    I really enjoyed this book because it gave me such a deep sense of the time of World War II and what the Jewish people went through. Tricia has a wonderful way of weaving story and characters so that I wanted to keep reading and see what would happen next¿especially how the separate characters would be woven together in the end. It has some fun twists and turns. I recommend this for a great reading time.

    A Wonderful Novel for any Historical Romance fan!!!

    Night Song begins with American medical student, Nick Fletcher, and his Austrian girlfriend, Evie, discussing what they hope to be a bright future when their lives are changed in ways neither of them could've ever imagined. Instead of building their lives together, they are torn apart. With Evie's family deported back to Austria in the wake of World War II, Nick volunteers for Europe as a medic in the US military. His medical training goes into warped speed as he cares for the wounded in less than ideal conditions. Evie, on the otherhand, can't believe the atrocities committed against the 'enemies of the state' and there is no way she can just sit back and watch what's going on around her. In Europe, Jewish families are being separated, their belongings plundered, and their bodies tortured and starved. The family of a shopkeeper in Prague is no exception. After the father is taken, Jakub, Daniel, and their mother are sent first to a concentration camp where the living conditions are inhumane at best. From there, the inhabitants that actually survive are transported to a work camp where conditions are even worse. Most would come to welcome death. Goyer does a superb job of showing the horrors of war through the eyes of an American medic, an Austrian sympathizer, a Jewish boy, and even a Nazi loyalist. Not only do we get to experience the war from four different angles, Goyer majestically weaves the stories of the four characters together, showing us how each of them impacts the others' lives in sometimes surprising ways. A MUST read for anyone who enjoys historical romances! Edee Wilcox, author of If I'd Only Known... The fictional account of a teenager's struggle with acceptance, sex, and Christian values.
