For the Wittgenstein family, the summer of 1915 was a time of both prosperity and unease, as the guns of war sound in the distance. But for eldest daughter, Beata, it was a time of awakening. By glimmering Lake Geneva, the Jewish beauty met a young French officer and fell in love. Even though her parents would never accept her marriage to a Catholic, Beata followed her heart anyway. As the two built a new life together, Beata's past would stay with her, and when Europe faces war once again, Beata must watch in horror as Hitler's terror threatens her family, even her daughter Amadea who has taken on the vows of a Carmelite nun. As family and friends are swept away without a trace, Amadea is forced into hiding, thus beginning a harrowing journey of survival, first in the Nazi death camps and then in the French resistance.… (more)

Steel describes the lives of three brave women in the backdrop of history. I would have to say Amadea is the main character in this powerful novel. Beata, the daughter and mother experiences a situation somewhat similar to what she herself put her parents through. It was an echo of the past; and that is what the book is all about. Every generation experiencing situations which though different have a de ja vue quality about them. ( )

I was somewhere with this book as the only one to read. Good book but again, not my type ( )

This book has realistic characters and gives a good understanding of what it may have been like living under the Nazi regime. Left me feeling unsatisfied as you don't find out what happens to the main characters but its nothing like what it must have been like for people living through this period in history. ( )
