Oh, the gift, for a writer, of receiving response to the work you set out into the world.
Over this last week, I’ve encountered heartening and thoughtful words about The Munich Girl both in person and in print.
“What went on in the world in the 1930s and ’40s sound disturbingly similar to what we are currently going through today, and cannot but give one pause.”
Reviewer aaward kindly sums up the novel as:
“intricately woven historical fiction. The tale of two friends starts before the beginning of World War II and encompasses all the situations and emotions that the war brought into their individual lives as well as into their continuing friendship.”
It’s extra-meaningful when readers make that connection with the themes of the power of spiritual friendship and shared emotional intimacy that each help human beings transcend even the most painful, destructive, or confusing circumstances life brings.
At her Beach Bound Books blog, reviewer Stacie Theis kindly calls the book:
“an absolutely consuming story that takes readers on a journey into history … secrets of the past.”
Stacie took her copy of The Munich Girl to a beach about as far as you can go from my own home in coastal New England—Kauai—and “couldn’t put it down. I got a little sunburned to say the least!”
