am excited to write this review. I have wanted to read a novel by @PamJenofffor a while. I finally got my opportunity with The Kommandant’s Girl. This
novel is historical in nature and focusing on World War II era. For readers who
have read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah; will have a nice segue way into
has just celebrated her Jewish wedding and honeymoon with her beloved Jacob.
Then the Nazis invaded Poland. Jacob tells her to return to her family and burn
their marriage certificate. Emma cannot bring herself to destroy this precious
certificate. She does go to her family, but finds herself in the ghetto. The
resistance helps her to escape and live with Jacob’s cousin. While living with
Peter’s aunt Emma assumes a new identity of Anna. Anna works in the Nazi office
in Krakow and soon becomes involved with the Kommandant. As her relationship
with the commandant grows will she be able to help the resistance? Or will he
find out who she really is?
enjoyed this novel. I loved reading about World War II era that includes
intrigue. This novel is narrated by Emma. Ms. Jenoff did a great job showing
the conflict that Emma faced as Anna her alter ego. She illustrated the
conflict by having Emma’s point of view throughout the story. This only adds to
the action and the frenetic pace of the story. The reader will find enjoyment
throughout this story. My only request would be to know more about Emma and her
journey, at the end of the novel. The ending seemed a little abrupt.
