Books our readers are talking about

lilacLilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly is a war drama based on the lives of three actual people whose destinies converged in the Ravensbrück concentration camp.   Kasia, a prisoner, Herta, a camp doctor, and Caroline, a rescue worker, narrate their experiences and their fates slowly converge. This is a “compelling, page-turning narrative” effectively history and old fashioned story telling (Fort Worth Star). In a similar vein is Ruta Septys Salt to the Sea, a drama about five refugees fleeing Stalin’s armies who board a doomed ship bound for Germany.  Her story is “artfully told and sensitively crafted” (School Library Journal).
