Touching the Wire by Rebecca Bryn is a story of all thewomen of the Holocaust. Miriam, a Jewish nurse, steps down from a cattle wagon and into the heart of Chuck, a young doctor, but saving her fromthe gas chamber exposes her to the full horror of camp life. Theirrelationship blossoms and together they save lives, joining the campresistance and risking execution daily. At liberation, they areseparated, Chuck stealing damning evidence that he dare not reveal forfear of harming his post-war family. Part Two takes place after hisdeath. His granddaughter, Charlotte, fighting her own demons, seeks touncover the past her grandfather wouldn't speak of, and solve themystery of what happened to Miriam, his lost love.

Rebecca Bryn has a way with words I have found in no other writer:"she'd left footprints in his heart, trodden deep and clear." Beautiful, but the true meaning behind them is hidden for a long time in TouchingThe Wire. A powerful and unforgettable story of life in Auschwitz, it is a testament to the courage of those that survived; touching theelectric fence that surrounded the camp was the fastest way to commitsuicide. I can only admire Ms Bryn for undertaking what must have beenchallenging research, and recommend this superbly written book to all.The horror of man's inhumanity to man and the love story between Waltand his "sepia girl" combine to make a nail-biting read that will leaveyou looking for more books by this talented author.- Readers' Favorite
