Brimming with lovingly crafted detail and heart-warming, this is a story that stayed with me.
The (almost matter-of-fact) reflective tone is what enabled me, as reader, to immerse myself in the story without being so overcome with emotion I couldn't finish it. Yet I did immerse myself, especially as I have been to many of the locations depicted and could *see* the scenes play out. And I certainly found myself gasping aloud and tearing up as the story unfolded.
I wonder at the skill Andie Newton demonstrates as author - as researcher, as storyteller - but also in finding the protagonist's voice - as though Ella must protect her inner heart from what she experienced, who she loved, and what she lost, just so she can tell this story.
Claudia becomes involved in the German Resistance and the White Rose Movement. When Claudia is arrested by the Gestapo, with the help from her Aunt Bridget Ella's flees Nuremberg and she moves to Munich. Here she gets a job working for the Reich, she's still trying to discover what happened to Claudia and she decides to use her work contacts to find her friend? Ella becomes a spy, she infiltrates the network, uses her position to gather information and she shares it.
The Girl I Left Behind is a story about WW II, friendship, danger and espionage.
Not all German's agreed with what the Nazi's were doing during WW II, they took huge risks and many paid the ultimate price.
I have been to Nueremberg, I do have in my family possessions a Miessen Coffee set that my late father gave to my late Mother as a Wedding present. One must visit the Miessen Museum if visiting Dresden and also walk the historical streets of Nueremberg.
Real page turner
