I loved the Zookeeper's Wife and now I have found another book that has really rocked my reading world, about WW2, The Baker's Secret by Stephen P Kiernan. A very moving tale of the cruelty of the Nazi army among a people that are nearly starving to death. Emma learned to bake from a master baker who was taken by gunpoint because he was Jewish. She is forced to bake for the Nazi army but secretly adds straw to make a couple extra loaves. She begins to do various things - including stealing some ham, etc. to help the people. This story will have you crying and is very moving. The end of this book is fantastic! I highly recommend this to all. 5 out of 5 stars! I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.
