An easy read . A notch or two above a romance novel but the plot line was quite predictable and I was able to figure out what was going to happen next. Nothing really wrong with this novel just not much depth to it. ( )

It took me a while to get to this book, not because I didn't want to read it, just kept getting overwhelmed with the books to read pile! But I finished it the other day and I have to say I am glad I finally took the time and read one for just me. I love Pam Jenoff's novels, all of them and this one did not disappoint.
Set right after WWII, the world is still in chaos after the Nazis are defeated. And there are new dangers and enemies, those that are unseen. Marta is liberated from a Nazi prison by a young American soldier, whom she feels an immediate attraction to despite her serious injuries. Taken to a hospital and later to a compound to recuperate she meets Rose, a prisoner from one of the Nazi death camps. Rose is in ill health and not sure of recovering due to a blood disease, the girls are taken under the wing of a kind nurse, Dava. Then Rose passes away, and Marta is reunited with Paul for one fleeting night. Dava insists that Rose wanted Marta to use her papers and go to England to her aunt's house. Marta isn't sure of making such a trip on her own but her loyalty to Rose wins and she takes off for England, all the while wondering about Paul and if she will ever see him again.
When events conspire and she is stranded in Paris, wandering the streets not knowing where to turn she passes a cafe and there is Paul, with a woman! I won't tell all the story because I am sure there are those who have not read this story yet, like me. I don't want to spoil it because there are a few twists and turns that have your stomach in knots before the ending resolves it all.
Living up to her reputation for a brilliant writer of historical fiction, Pam Jenoff has created a brilliant sequel to The Kommandant's Girl with The Diplomat's Wife (The Kommandant's Girl, #2)
I recommend to all historical fiction fans, you can never go wrong with one of Pam's novels. Great character development, easy comprehensive writing, just a all around good book. Get yours if you haven't already. ( )

This novel begins as World War 2 is ending. The main character, Marta, has been in prison and the Nazis tortured her to try get information about the resistance group that she was part of. She is near death when the prison is liberated by the American Army. After spending time in a hospital to regain her strength, she goes to London to start her new life. She is waiting for Paul, an American soldier that helped her in prison and that she got to know better when she was in the hospital, to join her in London so that they can be married. When his plane crashes with no survivors, she realizes that she needs to be strong and start her life again. She's devastated over Paul's loss but is pregnant and destitute so she decides to marry Simon, a British diplomat. While working for him, she finds out that there is a traitor in their group and agrees to go back to Poland to try to find out who is sharing information with the Russians. What she finds on her trip totally changes her life and her plans for the future.

This was an interesting book that looks at the upheaval in Europe after the liberation of the camps and prisons. Not only were there many people without homes but at the highest level of government, Russia was trying to take control of many of the most devastated countries. Marta was very brave to go back to Poland and risk her life to help her new country and during this time she was strong and resourceful. I definitely liked the ending and the way that good triumphed over evil in Marta's life.

I am a fan of this author and have read most of her books - I'm not sure how I missed this one. I found out that it was book 2 in a series when I started to do this review. It can be read out of order with no problem but I enjoyed book 2 so much that I have just ordered book 1 in the series (The Kommandant's Girl). ( )
