City of Women

City of Women - David R. Gillham This is the story of Berlin during WWII. I will tell you that there are many players in this book and there is a lot that is going on throughout the book, but that is what makes it so dang good.

Sigrid Schroeder is the wife of a German Soldier and lives with her mother in law in an apartment in Berlin. Before she knows it she is involved in hiding and moving Jews out of Berlin.

Throughout the entire book, you are never sure who you can trust and who you can't. Just when you think that you have it all figured out and the latest group of Jews are going to be moved to safety the rug is ripped out from under you. What you thought you knew is garbage!

This book is full of suspense and I thought that it was so well done and absolutely, totally believable. I found myself transported to 1940's Germany and many times hyperventilating or holding my breath with the situations that we find Sigrid getting herself into.

Are you interested in suspense stories? Are you interested in WWII? Then I would say that this is the book for you. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
