Overview

Poland, 1943-Heinrich Himmler orders the mass deportation of Gypsies to concentration camps. Sasha Karmazin, a Gypsy woman living in Warsaw, Poland, is torn from her family by the Gestapo and must leave behind her Polish husband, Henryk, and her two teenage sons, Karl and Dimitri. After being transported to Auschwitz, Europe's largest Nazi concentration camp, Sasha is forced to work as an interpreter for the Nazis. Her survival depends on her wits, and she will do anything to stay alive.

Nebraska, 1984-Beth Karmazin, a beautiful, bronze-skinned young woman and daughter of Karl Karmazin, is all too aware of her Gypsy heritage. But when she learns that her grandmother Sasha, presumed to be dead, is accused of having taken a Nazi lover and collaborating with the Nazi's while at Auschwitz, Beth is determined to prove her grandmother's innocence.

Beth's commitment takes her on a three-year quest deep into Communist-controlled Eastern Europe at the height of the Cold War, a journey that changes not only her life, but also the course of history.

Seamlessly moving from the turbulent 1940s to the 1980s, The Gypsy in My Soul creates a riveting portrait of one woman's devotion to family-and to uncovering the truth.

    First Novel Traces a Gypsy's Holocaust Experience

    ¿Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can¿t remember who we are or why we¿re here.¿ -Sue Monk Kidd, (from The Secret Life of Bees.) This first novel by Christine Harris follows the journey of one woman who finds her own place in life by tracing the long-hidden story of her grandmother, a Gypsy who was caught in the web of the Holocaust. The fast-paced plot is rich with historical detail and a vivid sense of place. Told as an unfolding mystery, this book is a real page-turner.

    WOW! ! What a great book!

    This is really a great read with a history lesson to boot. The story flows very easily from the 1940's to the 1980's telling the saga of three generations of a close knit family. The reader was impressed with the research required to write such a fact filled story that was gripping from page 1. This would really make a great movie. I believe this is a first novel for Ms. Harris. What a great beginning! I can hardly wait for her to write another.

    RIVETING TALE--KEN FOLLET AND JACK HIGGENS CALIBER

    A great read, combines a thriller with stories of the heart. Opens a little known chapter about the plight of gypsys in wwii. Should be adapted to the screen, a story worth telling and seeing. A must read for those interested in the struggle for survival, family values, and overcoming the odds. Kudos to christine harris!

    This is a well-researched, fresh, and engaging story. Ms Harris has written a completely absorbing book. It would be a great movie.

    Could Not Stop Reading!

    I couldn't get enough fast enough. High level suspense with unforgettable characters. It was wonderful and I had to read it straight through which never happens to me! I only wish it had been 1000 pages longer...loved how this painting was done with words. This portrayed and painted history in real and unforgettable terms. This author is bound for notoriety and acclaim for this book! ANB

    wonderful

    this is a wonderful novel - the depth of the characters, the paintings Ms Harris does with her words. The research in this novel was so indepth I learned much more about the autrocities of the concentration camps than i had ever known before. It gives you a great insight to an overlooked culture and people.
