“Readers who crave more books like Balson’s Once We Were Brothers (2013) and Kristin Hannah’s bestselling The Nightingale (2015) will be enthralled by Karolina’s Twins.” ―Booklist (starred review)
"A heart-wrenching but ultimately triumphant story." ―Chicago Tribune
"Karolina's Twins is involving right from the start, it reads quickly, and fans of historical fiction are sure to enjoy it." ―Chicago Jewish Star
“A heartbreaking tale of a mother’s love, friendship, and family in the face of increasingly brutal conditions and the constant threat of imminent death in Nazi-occupied Poland…reminiscent of the author’s first novel Once We Were Brothers…compelling.” ―Library Journal
“The third in Balson’s promising series about a husband-and-wife investigation team specializing in Holocaust cases. [Lena Woodward’s] survivor account becomes the main source of suspense, since she is reluctant to reveal the full horror of what she experienced until the end…and [it] does not disappoint.” ―Kirkus
"Balson kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what the next chapter would reveal. He did an excellent job in staying true to the historical facts of those years of the Holocaust and what Lena, the main character and survivor, had to go through. Balson keeps the suspense so riveting that it was difficult to put the book down. I would say most will read it in one night sitting―kudos to Ronald Balson." ―Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, Director of the University of Miami Holocaust Teacher Institute
“Secrets, friendships, survival, and the Holocaust are woven together in Ronald H. Balson’s haunting Karolina's Twins.” ―Family Circle
"A novel of survival, justice and redemption...riveting." ―Chicago Tribune, on Once We Were Brothers

Eighty-nine year old Lena Woodward reveals her tragic story of events that occurred during the Second World War to Catherine Lockhart and Liam Taggart in present day Chicago, Il. The lawyer-detective couple, intrigued by Lena’s moving account of her experiences during WW II, decide, to help Lena solve the seventy-year old mystery that has plagued her: the case of two missing babies.
The novel gets off to a slow start due to the way it is written but the 2nd half of the book totally sucks the reader in.
I purchased the book and would gladly purchase others for use as gifts.
The holocaust did “take place” and Hilter and his henchmen should have been burnt to death, no questions asked! The Jews took the brunt of the torture by being used for experiments on the females, rape and all the men, women and children that were sent to the gas chambers.
