    This is my first experience with Chiaverini and I am impressed From 1929 through 1946, three women look on in horror as the Nazi Party rises and comes into power Mildred Harnack is an American intellectual married to a German and Greta Kuckhoff is a hopeful German writer formerly enrolled at the University of Wisconsin where she met the Harnacks Their stories are factual and both are members of the Red Orchestra, a resistance cell operating in Berlin Sara Weitz is a Jewish German literature student and enrolled in Harnack s lectures She is a composite of Jewish members of the Red Orchestra Having read a number of WWII nonfiction books, the historical accuracy is probably the best I ve read within the subgenre of historical fiction Don t expect a rip roaring WWII adventure full of blowing up bridges and railroad tracks, carefully planned assassinations or harrowing escapes from the Nazis Rather, this is a story of brave wo...

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing Edmund Burke Some fires burned themselves out only after consuming everything within reach of the flames Beginning in June of 1929, this story shares the stories of several women living in Germany during the rise of the Nazi Party, and the stories of those whose lives connected with theirs Two of these women, Mildred Harnack and Greta Kuckhoff, were based on their real lives, living and operating as members of the resistance in Germany, through the Red Orchestra The third woman, Sara Weitz, was a character based on the multiple Jewish German women who were also members of the Red Orchestra, Die Rote Kapelle, also called the Red Chapel by the Gestapo The Red Orchestra being a conglomeration of separate resistance groups united in the belief that the evil incarnate in this regime must be thwarted Of these three women, one is an American, Mildred Harnack, a teacher in Berlin whose husband, Arvid, is German Mildred meets Greta, an aspiring author, and Arvid when she is a student at the University of Wisconsin Once they are in Germany, Sara Weitz meets Harnack through her lectures Aiding these three women is Martha Dodd whose father is the American ambassador to Germany.This was a fascinating look at this time and place, how things changed at a pace that had most of the population turn a blind eye to the changes, a little here, a little there, unti...

    Resistance Women takes you to a whole brilliant journey and it follows the WWI from the beginning of Hitler s rise, and the story is elaborated very intriguing with mixed emotions, a huge applause for Chiaverini for writing such a wonderful story She really is a powerful Author to share an amazing story with all of us, and we re so happy to have her book in our May choice for our Monthly Picks so make sure to grab a copy.The reality of the time is so accurate and it is very professional in that level, surviving each day was so intriguing for the family and the acts that followed were so different and interesting, I really liked the way how the Author portrayed the National Socialist movement, it felt like I saw a movie within the movie The book is really unputdownable and it has 600 pages which will feel to you like 6 because the story is so unique and interesting you wouldn t want to finish.The true story of the brave women were so incredibly powerful, they tried to fight the injustice being done to the oppressed during the war All the character s actions are focused on taking down the Nazis You ll enjoy every detail of the book that has taken part in one of the worst moment of Human s history.The novel follows with four different main characters, we meet Midred an American girl who is a teacher in Berlin, she s marri...

    Although this book is shown as a work of fiction, it is also noted that the events portrayed in this book are based on historical facts.Jennifer Chiaverini does it again, that being that she has written an extraordinary story in Resistance Women She never disappoints.Told in varying viewpoints, the story revolves around American Mildred Fish Harnack, and the friends who support her and each other through an extremely harrowing time in history when nothing, and no one, is safe, especially Jews and intellectuals, of which many of the characters are a member.Mildred Fish graduates from a school in Wisconsin and then marries Arvid Harnack, a German economist She relocates with her husband to his homeland, settling in Berlin, where they hope to have a brilliant future together.When the Nazis come into power, M...

    This ambitious World War II novel is vast in its historical record and scope, taking us from the beginning of Hitler s rise to power through the end of the war, focusing in detail on the sociological and historical aspects of the rise of Nazism and Hitler, and the attempts by a few brave souls to withstand and resist and finally to just survive the onslaught of the horrors the characters face that grow larger and incomprehensible every year.The author s grasp of the period is amazing, and she conveys the realities of the time in Germany very well There are broad historical brushstrokes as well as detailed looks at what everyday life must have been like for your average German citizen, who found herself swept up in the madness of the National Socialist movement Because of the tremendous scope of this novel, which aims to provide an idea of the larger historical movement as well as the focused daily impact of these movements on the lives of the characters, the story suffers when the author turns her attention to the actual human interests here, the 4 characters that are the foci of the story In good historical fiction the historical background serves the interes...

    Going into this book I thought I knew what to expect, but not in this detail, and not when I felt that I needed to get out of there and leave When I think about those that stay and then what happened, I thought about staying in my own home, it s mine why should I leave, and that mentality could get them killed.Through the author we get to walk on the streets of Berlin during this horrific time, and we put faces to those who can see what is happening and do what they can to help thwart this evil.This is a very long book, but I was mesmerized and hoping for a change in history, of course that didn t happe...

    3.5 starsThis book showed up on my desk for review a few months ago and I was absolutely in love with the cover It reminded me of spring and it was elegant and had a lot of visual interest The summary also sounded like something I would love, as I especially love war time stories.Chiaverini has written a variety of different books, with her most widely known book being Mrs Lincoln s Dressmaker as well as a women s fiction quilting series called, Elm Creek Quilts.This book seemed completely out of her normal genre Her signature genre seemed to be historical fiction with crafting and women s fiction with crafting so I wondered how this book about resistance women in WWII was going to come together and be different than her usual stories I have to say that I admire Chiaverini s ability to shift genres and write memorable stories While this book was on the longer, dense heavy side over 600 pages , I did enjoy it and I commend her for reaching out into a new genre There were some parts that were a little slow for me, but on the whole I thought the book mostly flowed ok, but it was just slow in parts and had a lot of historic detail.It definitely wasn t a books that I was able to breeze through It took me a few days of ag...

    This was a long book and took awhile to get through Amazing history and heart gripping events The author bases all her main characters on real people except one who is a combination of people which makes for excellent authenticity Because this is so historically accurate the story gets choppy in places The middle gets a little slow, but the last 100 pages are worth the whole book There s a brief affair at the beginning that I assume is historically accurate.Th...
