The Orphans Tale
Reviewed by- Linda (2018/02/27, 11:25 PM)
The premise of this book is not unusual, at least if you read a lot of historical fiction about WWI. And, yes this is a story about the Nazis, but their presence is muted in this tale. It doesnt mitigate the heinousness or the enormity of their violation against humankind; it simply means they hover in the background for a lot of the book. Even so, the fear of them is still palpable.

This is a tale about a traveling German circus, which hid some Jews from the Nazis, it's a beautifully written story of friendship, love and survival and also a tale that is sad and uplifting. I liked the unique perspective and learning yet more ways that brave people risked their lives trying to do the right thing and also more of the heartless ways of the Reich. Recommend.Back.
