It's World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss...ultimately, it's one woman's story of survival.

Catatonic patients at a mental hospital.
Create a more believable heroine. Ludwigia come across as a dim wit who is doomed to make all the wrong choices so that the author can insert her narrative into a high school world history book.
Daffy Duck could have done a better job. The narrator is flat, unemotional and boring. If I could have rated it zero, I would have.
I just don't understand how this book got so many high ratings. There is nothing new, inventive or thought provoking here,
