A Jazzy Little Book Club
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Carolineâ€™s world is forever changed when Hitlerâ€™s army invades Poland in September 1939â€”and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to RavensbrÃ¼ck, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continentsâ€”from New York to Paris, Germany, and Polandâ€”as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.
