LETTERS FROM BERLIN
Tania Blanchard unearths the climate of fear as Allied forces edged closer to Berlin, to release the stranglehold the Third Reich had on it’s people. Susie, desperate to protect her loved ones, accepts the help of an influential Nazi officer, but it comes with a terrible price.
Tania, inspired to write the stories told her by her grandmother, captures the intensity of a brutal and unforgiving war, successfully weaving love, loss, deception, desperation and finally, hope.
I enjoyed her skill in combining historical tragedy, romance, and true stories.
The question that continually confronts the reader is, ‘How far would you go to protect the ones you love?’ It resonates with the ethical dilemma highlighted in my recent novel, ‘Wall of Tears’ – ‘we do whatever we can to survive’.
A powerful novel to add to your holiday reading.
