A Train in Winter
- By: Caroline Moorehead
- Narrated by: Patience Tomlinson
- Length: 14 hrs and 35 mins
In Paris, January 1943, 230 French women resisters were rounded up and sent on a train to Auschwitz - the only train, in the four years of the German occupation, to take women of the resistance to a death camp. The youngest was a schoolgirl of 15, the eldest a farmer’s wife of 68; there were among them teachers, biochemists, sales girls, secretaries, housewives and university lecturers. The women turned to one another, finding solace and strength in friendship and shared experience.
Nothing like the blurb . . .

What disappointed you about A Train in Winter?
It sounded like a documentary not a story.
What could Caroline Moorehead have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
the voice and accent is boring like listening to a history lesson
