Book Review for The Polish Wife by @GosiaNealon

Beautiful! I am loving the books in this series! They are World War 2 fiction and while they shed light on the atrocities that took place during this brutal time in history, they also show the resilience of the human spirit. While all the evil is happening, people are carrying on with their lives. After all, this is their one life to live. Will they live it to the full, working with what they have, or bow over in grief?  

The Polish Wife is a love story amid the darkness of Nazi infiltration. Having fled to Poland to escape an abusive husband, Anna, not only takes up with the resistance but she finds a doctor with a gentle spirit who loves her. The book follows their lives with the brutal backdrop of war and political upheaval. There are losses, there are victories.

One thing that I absolutely love about these books is how immersive they are. The characters feel real, and I experience the gamut of emotion as I keep eagerly flipping the pages. I strongly recommend this book if you're looking for a book to pull you in and propel you to another time and place. This novel takes readers on a powerful, moving journey.

Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced reading copy.
