The story is an interesting look at the psychological reaction to her discovery of her geritage. however, I feel it didn't live up to the summary. The way the author portrayed herself did not make her likeable to me. friends described her as happy and exuberant. however, she is downtrodden the whole book. If it seems like she should be because of the subject let me warn you. more than 50 percent of it is her life before finding out her relation to the commandant. The mother seems to be a much more compelling character.
I was turned off by the title which seemed attention grabbing and trite. Unfortunately, the editor continued to fail with this book. The story jumps around in time far too often, and also jumps to a third person narrative, while still using the same voice, accent etc
Overall while I was interested enough to listen in its entirety, I'm not sure it was worth one of my coveted credits.

I had read many books about the Holocaust over the years. But this was the first from this perspective. I really appreciated the author's willingness to share her struggles, her pain, her growth so openly. Excellent book.
