"The Nine follows the true story of the author's great aunt Helene Podliasky, who led a band of nine female resistance fighters as they escaped a German forced labor camp and made a ten-day journey across the front lines of WWII from Germany back to Paris. The nine women were all under thirty when they joined the resistance. They smuggled arms through Europe, harbored parachuting agents, coordinated communications between regional sectors, trekked escape routes to Spain and hid Jewish children in scattered apartments. They were arrested by French police, interrogated and tortured by the Gestapo. They were subjected to a series of French prisons and deported to Germany. The group formed along the way, meeting at different points, in prison, in transit, and at Ravensbrck. By the time they were enslaved at the labor camp in Leipzig, they were a close-knit group of friends. During the final days of the war, forced onto a death march, the nine chose their moment and made a daring escape. Drawing on incredible research, this powerful, heart-stopping narrative is a moving tribute to the power of humanity and friendship in the darkest of times"--… (mais)

I need to remember these women every time I want to whine about something. I love war stories, and this honest, traumatic, amazing true story of these women and their will to live and persevere is one that will stay with me.
I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator did a fantastic job!
Every time I read about survivors of the concentration camps, I am in awe that anyone would make it through alive, with any semblance of sanity. Not only does this book detail the nine women's journey, it follows up on what their lives were like after their "freedom" - a freedom that haunted many of the survivors.
It's a must-read, and a book that will stay with me. The author did extensive research and brought these women to life for the reader. Excellent book!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this story. And to the narrator for doing such an amazing job. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I am a fan of history, well maybe fan is not the right word since sometimes history contains a lot of ugly truths, but hidden amongst the ugly truth is small but powerful moments of great beauty. This book takes the ugly truth and finds 9 great beauties. There are parts of the book that I had trouble reading, things I never heard about that were painful to read but were a necessary to tell the story. By the end of the book, I felt for these women and I really wish I had the pleasure of knowing them. I wish that I had half their strength. I want to thank the author for writing this story and giving everyone the opportunity to not only see the ugly truth but to find the great beauty. ( )

After escaping from a German labor camp, Helene a group of nine female resistance fighters across the front lines. This book tells the story of each of the nine women, their involvement in the resistance, and their lives during WWII. I thought this was a well research and engaging story. The resistance work and escape was fascinating. My biggest criticism is that I did not want to read about the author's research, I just wanted to hear the story. Because of this criticism, 3 out of 5 stars. ( )
