Editorial Reviews

Review

Five Stars
"This book needs to join the ranks of the classic survivor stories of WWII such as"Diary of Anne Frank" and "Man's Search for Meaning".  It is truly that amazing!" In D'tale Magazine

Five Stars

"In spite of the time and the ambient war which Lilly and her family must survive, the story is not gruesome, but rather, it is a statement about the depth and strength of the human soul, and ultimately, really, of the love that drives people on in spite of all the reasons not to love. Highly recommended." -International Writers Inspiring Change (IWIC)

"I would heartily recommend this book as an engrossing and well-researched story with two of the most engaging protagonists I've read for a while." -Jessica Brown for Discovering Diamonds - Independent Reviews of the Best in Historical Fiction

"I for one am glad she shared her story with us as it gives us a look at a different perspective from those who endured this tragic time in history. "Surviving the Fatherland" by Annette Oppenlander is highly recommended reading! -by Carol Hoyer for Reader Views

"...these characters were lovable and real, and I cared deeply for them. I had tears in my eyes at a few different points during the book. A wonderful read for anyone looking to read a love story set against the backdrop of WWII Germany!" -Sara Kocek, Yellow Bird Editors

"Amazingly touching, vividly described and masterfully written, this book leaves a strong impact on you. The characters were deep, well developed and engaging and the narrative poignantly written and entrancing." -Read Day and Night Blog Review


Five Stars
"This family saga is wonderfully written and, aside from the emotional ramifications, very easy to read. I stayed up too late a couple of nights reading it. I was really invested in the characters and wondered what was going to happen to them next. Knowing it was based on the author's parents, it was obvious they would get together at the end, but there were still moments I wasn't sure how it was going to work out. I highly recommend this book!" -Long and Short Reviews Blog Review

Five Stars
"...at times you can feel the ache of hunger and smell the smoke. The horrors the children witness and live through brought me to tears." -Deep In the Crease' Blog Review

Five Stars
"This is the most intense book that I have read..." -Eskie Mama and Dragon Lady Reads Blog Review

Five Stars
"Surviving the Fatherland is, simply put, a really good read." - Hope.Dreams.Life...Love Blog Review   

From the Author

Fifteen years in the making, SURVIVING THE FATHERLAND, has been the toughest story I have ever attempted. After interviewing my parents about their war memories as children growing up in Hitler's Germany, it took me years to pull together a coherent story. But that wasn't enough. I had to dig deeply into my own emotions to put together this tale of love and survival against the odds. Please visit my homepage annetteoppenlander.com for more background information and historical photos of the main characters.
