That said, for a first novel, this was terrific. The characters popped with their different personalities and mannerisms. Detail was very well illustrated. Felix was a strong character, surviving his horrible ordeal at concentration camps with the hope of finding his "Hannah" and having a life with her. His fixation of her was needed more for his survival than her needing to find him again.
Max was an atrocious man of the Nazi party, basically Mengele's twin in conducting medical tests and experiments on Jews and others the Nazis deemed unacceptable. His calculating ways kept Inge fearing for her life. The only reason she was kept alive was for their son Wolf, who Max poisoned with lies and manipulation about Inge. But Inge was far smarter in the end than Max could've suspected. SPOILER ALERT... Although, Inge and Felix did not ultimately get together, I think that was the best result considering the perfect expectations Felix had of her. I love how Hokin made the story interweave and circle around to the coincidental ending. It seems to me that Max and other Nazis would've gotten away with their atrocities had Inge and Felix gotten together before he was taken away and she married Max. It was a sound storyline.
I wish there would be a sequel. I want to see Max and the others who escaped to be found and punished. I definitely recommend this book.

It’s not a bad book but I have read many more around this era and topic that deserved higher recommendation. Therefore I have gone middle of the road with stars
