Format: Paperback
Blewett has quite a story to tell, beginning with her childhood when she was briefly introduced to Hitler, to the pleasures of vacationing in Bavaria, to scavenging for survival in war's aftermath. More than a history lesson, the book chronicles the emotions within a particular family who began as members of the privileged class. Blewett gives us an unflinching view of people who disapproved of, but did not act against Hitler. Far from apologizing for German sins, Blewett shows the danger which made her mother look away from a train of Jewish prisoners, the regimentation which shaped the lives of her family, and the forces which cost them dearly.

I am the same age as the author. I experienced World War II while living in the protective environment of America. This book helped me to better understand what it was like to live under a repressive regime and conditions of war in your back yard. I think every American should read this book. It should be available in schools and libraries. My picture of World War II is more complete because of Feet in the Fire.

Format: Paperback
Margot Blewett writes with clarity and intimacy about her family in WW2 Germany under Hitler. More than a memoir of growing up amid war time deprivation and destruction, it's also about how determined parents can keep their family together with values that outlast the worst of politicians with dominion over them. Similar to accounts that have endured in our own country's records from the War Between the States and more recently the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s and 70s. Similar to family histories recounted to me by German friends while I lived in Germany for almost two years. Some families divided by philosophy or sense of duty, others united and unbreakable. One person, one family, one neigborhood can do the right thing, even if their lives are turned upside down in a world turned to rubble around them. Read Feet in the Fire, and appreciate her story. Imagine the truth about families all over the world today under similar conditions of official oppression by ruthless dictators who will stop at nothing for their own greed for power. Buy, read, and tell your friends about Feet in the Fire. You'll be glad you did. Voted best nonfiction of 2002 in a poll of my well read friends.

The author paints a picture of a time in history that many have forgotten and others never knew. Her personal and painfully honest emotions capture the reader. I did not want to do anything but read and get to the end of her story. What a treasure to have Mrs. Blewett's memories and life experiences in print! I believe this book should be taught in our schools.
