Publisher's Summary

In 1930s Berlin, choked by the tightening of Hitler's fist, the Klein family are gradually losing everything that is precious to them. Their 15-year-old daughter, Rosa, slips out of Germany on a Kindertransport train to begin a new life in England. Charged with the task of securing a safe passage for her family, she vows that she will not rest until they are safe. But as war breaks out and she loses contact with her parents, Rosa finds herself wondering if there are some vows that can't be kept....
A sweeping tale of love and loss, with the poignant story of the Kindertransport at its heart, this is an exceptional accomplishment from one of Britain's bravest and most vibrant young writers.

must read

Would you consider the audio edition of The English German Girl to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the book, but I feel like I have. Teal puts in all the voices and you get lost in the story and imagining the scenes.

What other book might you compare The English German Girl to and why?

This book is so well written it can be compared to the classics

Any additional comments?

I love the way the story weaves together and German words are sprinkled throughout. I got lost in this book and was thrilled it was long, but wished it were longer.

A sad but rewarding tale

This is a story of those percecuted by the Nazis and the strength and will of them to survive. A historically accurate story of one Jewish German family's strong bond and strength amidst the increasing cruelty of the regime and the hope and strength of a young girl who is sent to England alone. The narration is superb and the writing detailed. The reader soon feels the peril and hope to survive. It is a personal view of the times. It is not a story of the camps. I would not hesitate to rank it as a wartime story similar to The Diary of Anne Frank.
