Giveaway: Even in Darkness

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Barbara Stark-Nemon has been researching her German-Jewish family’s history during the Holocaust for the past 15 years, and has now written a novel based on their stories. She went in-depth with her research, traveling to Israel, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic and England for interviews and investigation and translating over 100 personal letters.

A historical novel based on a true story, Even in Darkness is the tale of family, lovers, two world wars, and the Holocaust, revealing a vivid portrait of Germany during the twentieth century. Spanning a century and three continents, the book tells the story of Kläre Kohler, whose origins in a prosperous German-Jewish family hardly anticipate the second half of her long life in a loving relationship with Ansel Beckmann, a German priest half her age.

The book explores just one example of the relationship between love, religion, and politics during the world wars. It is well written, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It would appeal to anyone with an interest in European wartime history, or even those interested in historical or romance novels.

I have a chance to give away a copy of the book. To enter, leave a comment with what you like best about historical novels. Deadline is April 15th.

  1. I have always loved history and enjoyed reading historical novels to get swept away in another time period
