If you know me, you know I love historical fiction! WWII is my favorite, so I was excited to get this engaging and captivating story and be part of this tour. I’ve read one of Kelly Rimmer’s other novels, Truths I Never Told You, so I know that I would enjoy it! This story is based in fact and I had heard of Irena Sendler, but this story just sucked me in. The details were amazingly vivid and the story stayed with me long after I was done reading. I will say that some of it was hard to read, but I liked how the ending felt so hopeful.
Thank you for having me as part of the tour and for my e-galley!
