Publisher's Summary

It's 1935. Rita Feuerstahl comes to the university in Krakow intent on enjoying her freedom. But life has other things in store - marriage, a love affair, a child, all in the shadows of the oncoming war. When the war arrives, Rita is armed with a secret so enormous that it could cost the Allies everything, even as it gives her the will to live. She must find a way both to keep her secret and to survive amid the chaos of Europe at war. Living by her wits among the Germans as their conquests turn to defeat, she seeks a way to prevent the inevitable doom of Nazism from making her one of its last victims. Can her passion and resolve outlast the most powerful evil that Europe has ever seen?
In an epic saga that spans from Paris in the '30s and Spain's Civil War to Moscow, Warsaw, and the heart of Nazi Germany, The Girl from Krakow follows one woman's battle for survival as entire nations are torn apart, never to be the same.

Huge disappointment

First if all, there's no need for fictional Holocaust stories when there are so many true survivor stories that are worthy of your time.

Second, and most disturbing, is the disgusting erotica that plays a considerable role in this book. The author wrote more on this topic than of the main character's family. I find it incredibly disrespectful to those that suffered extreme persecution and death. How low-brow!

Lastly, the story is so far-fetched. The main character isn't even likable and the author seemed to have concentrated on rather irrelevant things as opposed to the horror that the victims suffered.

Good story - odd narration

I found the story interesting and engaging. However, the very proper British gentleman narrating made it a bit difficult for me to appreciate the emotions and thoughts of the primary character. He sounded as if he were reading a technical journal while relating some very intimate and emotional scenes.
