I really enjoyed this book. I thought it would be more like the title in the fact that her husband would be more involved in the Nazi party but he is not. It's more about how she deals with normal life living in Germany during the war. She tells stories about what she was forced to do which was very interesting. I would recommend this book as its a new insight in to a person's life living in an horrendous time.
"interesting and well written"
I found this book to be very interesting, well written and well narrated. Definately worth a read.
this audiobook is simply fantastic,feel the fear,its a wonder she kept saine,fabulous story-had to listen to it in a few sittings
Kept me gripped from start to finish, informative, distressing, inspiring.... all aspects are covered here. Life and people can be so cruel, and survival is the strongest instinct of all. Makes me want to get a hard copy to read and study.
"An Ordinary Perspective"
Brilliantly written and narrated, from start to finish this one is very difficult to turn off, there were many times where I found myself thinking I'd just listen to a little bit more but ended up still there over an hour later. An ordinary first hand world war two account written from a housewife's perspective, no colourful or exaggerative language, just an honest real account of how it was to live through those years. At times thrilling, totally enthralling, a love story, family bonds explored, a mothers love from different sides, cruelty, passion, extreme fear, living a physical lie at the same time as another life still very much embedded on the soul, sheer determination and survival, above all hope, this book has it all and definitely well worth downloading.
