    A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz’s beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans - especially Jews like Jacob and his family - are treated like dogs. When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare - trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a story everyone must listen to! A heart warming story about human perserverance, strength, and love. Also a great reminder about the horrors of Auschwitz. I fell in love with the characters and enjoyed Lane's voice. He brought the characters to life.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I didn't want the story to end but it ended perfectly. I was actually crying tears - what an incredible book.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the characters to life - from the different languages to the differences in their personalities. Fabulously done!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many. The ending was my absolute favorite. I felt like I was saying good-bye to friends.


    Any additional comments?

    The other part that I loved about this story are the characters' strength of faith as well as their questionning of God. Very human, very easy to be empathetic, and brilliantly felt.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.
