When I first saw “White Rose, Black Forest,” it was described as a historical fiction novel. When I started reading through it, I was quickly engrossed in the pages and had a hard time putting the book down. The characters are so carefully defined, it’s as if you knew them.
When Franka enters the black forest, she has but one thought in mind. The war and the Gestapo have destroyed her family, and with a pistol in her hand, she is ready for it all to be over with. Little did she know what was waiting for her in the forest.
The injured Luftwaffe captain causes quite the dilemma for Franka. She is a nurse, and nurses save people. Her hatred and loathing for this man must be pushed aside so she can do what is right. As she and the injured soldier try to stay ahead of the approaching Gestapo, tensions leap off the pages.
I thought this book was excellent. It started out a bit slow as the story built, and then it was an action thriller in league with the best of them. Eion Dempsey does a wonderful job with the characters, the history and the flow. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to spend the day enthralled in a great novel. I give “White Rose, Black Forrest” a 9.5 out of 10 stars
