“Lilac Girls” by Martha Hall Kelly

5 stars

Lilac Girls is the first novel by Martha Hall Kelly, and the best book I’ve read so far this year! A New York socialite, some Polish women in the Ravensbruck concentration camp, and a female Nazi doctor all have separate stories that eventually intertwine. Chapters of each woman’s stories are masterfully told. Each chapter ends in some suspense and you move to the next woman’s story again ending in a cliff-hanger. The writing is excellent, historically accurate, and a real page-turner. Highly recommended.
