Set in Nazi occupied Europe, All My Love, Detrick follows the lives of two families, one Jewish and one German. They are bound together forever by a forbidden love.
Excerpt: The desolation all around her touched a nerve, and she hurried to turn the corner. A soft voice whispered in her mind, "Hurry, Leah, it's not safe here." Her heart began to race. Sweat formed in her armpits. Now there were no more houses; only open field. Walking faster her heel hit a patch of ice. Stumbling and tripping she fell. Fortunately, she'd fallen to her left landing on a grassy surface. Nausea played havoc with her stomach as it accompanied the thumping of her heart in her eardrums. Something felt wrong.
If you like historical sagas, you'll love All My Love, Detrick.

yes the narrator
don't use this narrator for novels.......maybe is ok for a non fiction book
I'm unsure of the author but will definitely avoid this narrator!
This narrator has a very monotone voice and I just could not get into the book. Because the subject interests me, I will try to read it when I have the time.
This narrator was so monotone that I couldn't concentrate on the jest of the story.
It's a pretty good story, historic events well mixed with fiction. But could they not find a reader who is actually literate? I've never heard such fumbling, toneless, unprofessional reading. My advice: Read the book, don't listen to it.
The recording was poor. It sounded as if it was done in a someone's basement. At one point, you can hear a typing sound in the background, and on more than one occasion, you hear a cat meowing (not part of the story). It was the worst recorded book I have heard to date.In addition, the reader did not do different voices for the various characters and often was devoid of emotion entirely, which gave the reading a very flat quality.
I enjoyed the story considerably though my personal peference would have been for a different ending (don't want to spoil the ending for anyone).
