“For Such a Time,” by Kate Breslin.

In a word, this story is extraordinary! I cried! The unfathomable sufferings of WW II are brought to life in this historic fiction. Stella struggles as she watches her people beaten, starved and forced on a train to Auschwitz, while she lives in physical comfort as the Kommandant’s secretary. The author has taken the story of Queen Esther, from the Old Testament and placed her in a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. Beautifully written, captivating. If you enjoy historical fiction, this is a must read!
