Editorial Reviews


Touching the Wire by Rebecca Bryn is a story of all the  women 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 from  the gas chamber exposes her to the full horror of camp life. Their  relationship blossoms, and together, they save lives, joining the camp  resistance and risking execution daily. At liberation, they are  separated, Chuck stealing damning evidence that he dare not reveal for  fear of harming his post-war family. Part Two takes place after his  death. His granddaughter, Charlotte, fighting her own demons, seeks to  uncover the past her grandfather wouldn't speak of, and solve the  mystery 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 Touching The Wire. A powerful and unforgettable story of life in Auschwitz, it is a testament to the courage of those that survived; touching the  electric fence that surrounded the camp was the fastest way to commit  suicide. I can only admire Ms Bryn for undertaking what must have been  challenging research, and recommend this superbly written book to all. The horror of man's inhumanity to man and the love story between Walt  and his "sepia girl" combine to make a nail-biting read that will leave  you looking for more books by this talented author.- Readers' Favorite

From the Author

Touching the Wire was inspired by a television report about Nazi war criminals. I wondered if I could ever forgive such people. As I researched, the question became harder to answer, and this novel was a way of discovering whether there were any circumstances under which I could find forgiveness. I now ask that question of my readers. 'Could you forgive this?'
