Publisher's Summary

Just before the outbreak of World War II, Fabienne, a young German girl, flees her abusive, widowed father and takes a job caring for disabled children in a home on the outskirts of Berlin. When Jurgen, a young soldier, turns up on the doorstep of the home asking if he can take Fabienne to the local dance, the women running the organisation agree against their better judgement. Soon the young couple is in love.

With the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party comes persecution of anyone seen to be “inferior to the German master race”. This includes children with disabilities, and Fabienne and the women flee the Nazi wrath, taking the vulnerable children with them on an epic journey across Germany. Some will survive the Nazi punishments, others will not. But in the background is her relationship with Jurgen. Will he stay loyal or betray her to his masters in the Nazi party? When she hears that her father is in jail awaiting the death penalty for murder, she is forced to come out of hiding to visit him and make her peace. The risk is enormous, but in doing so, Fabienne learns some extraordinary news, which changes the course of her life.

An emotional, poignant read!

This was a delightful blend of romance and history in a unique setting. This book made me feel all sorts of emotions and is so well written. The characters were real, relatable and well fleshed out.
The author has skillfully captured the essence of this story and delivered it so skillfully.
SD Cousins did a fairly good audio delivery as well.

Inspiring Perspective

The dangers of judging those who are different given light. A perspective story of a person abused by those who should have protected her, protecting those persecuted by a state that should have protected them. This story gets across a lot of points without bashing you over the head with them.

Poignant And Powerful

I very much enjoyed this poignant and powerful read. Set in the backdrop of WWII, one of the most destructive wars known to mankind, I really loved how well the writer captured the authenticity of the setting and the attitudes of the characters as Germany faces its economic crisis and the beginning of the Third Reich. Amidst this is family drama and romance. Both were very well played out. The narration was fantastic as well. Recommended.

WWII fiction with compelling characters

Almighty: Allmachtig is a compelling, well-researched story about an orphanage caretaker during the rise of the Nazi party. The author really immerses the reader in the pre-WWII setting, and the struggles of the characters really resonate.

Instead of focusing on the Jewish Holocaust, as the vast majority of this genre does, this book instead focuses on the equally tragic eugenics programs and handicapped genocide of the Nazi party.

But it's not all history - the main plot also goes deep into the compelling characters and their interpersonal relationships.

If you enjoy historical fiction, you won't want to miss this one!

Excellent Storytelling, Great Narration

I enjoyed this story on a few different levels. First, the story itself. I found it poignant, well thought out, and emotionally gratifying. The narration was fantastic as well. The narrator really brought the story and the characters to life. I started this book and was pretty much unable to put it down (except when I absolutely had to because of, you know, life, lol.) This was my first by this author and it won’t be my last. I look forward to more and recommend this to anyone looking fro something that packs an emotional punch.

An emotional story

This was an emotional story about a young girl and her life in Nazi Germany. The story was really well done and I did like the flashback to explain the motivations behind the actions of certain characters. I really can’t say any more without spoiling the story but definitely a worthwhile book.

MIGHTY GOOD READ!

A suspense filled novel full of twists and turns! I was drawn in from the first by the young woman whose story carries the book and her dilemma of how to improve her life. The story was full of surprises and I was so happy to see that all the characters were well rounded, with redeeming qualities despite how “bad” they sometimes appeared. The world of Germany during WWII was equally well depicted, and the author transported me to a past I’ve heard about but never experienced so fully. In fact, this visceral and visual novel would make an awesome movie. Stephen Spielberg, where are you?! Kudos to PGR Wright and to his narrator, SD Cousins, who imbued the characters and story with an additional layer with his excellent reading of this mighty good story!

Brilliant!

A brilliantly told story of the suffering of people under the Nazi regime. Obviously well researched it tells of the trials and tribulations faced by good hearted women looking after disadvantaged children, unwanted by their parents because of various disabilities they are taken in to a home called Almighty. They are forced to move on as Hitlers policies toward disabled people mean certain death. Fabien is a loveable character, worked hard by a father who doesn't show her any love she gets a job at Almighty and that is the start of heartbreak, tribulation and triumph for her. S D Cousins's narration is excellent, perfect for the telling of this story. Highly recommended with a Tissue required warning, espescially at the end of the book. Looking forward to the second book which I shall be listening to and reviewing later this week.☺
I was kindly given a copy of the book by the author and leave this honest review voluntarily. **********

Tough subject tackled sensitively

I really enjoyed this book and my interest in the WW2 setting was something that drew me to it. The well-documented horrors of the Holocaust are tackled from a very personal position, as we follow Fabienne through her struggles. I felt that the inclusion of the added traumas she suffered at the hands of her family made the listener even more invested in her story. A well-researched, emotional and memorable book.

very convincing and thought provoking

A very convincing and thought provoking novel set in Germany during the Nazi regime. Gives an insight into the brutal suffering inflicted upon ordinary citizens who didn't fit the design of the pure Aryan race.

Ive seen films and documentaries about Nazi Germany some of which cover the things that happened to disabled people.
This is the first time I've read a book covering the subject and I'm glad I picked this one for my first one very well written would 💯 recommend it to anyone.

A Hard Subject

Brilliant story. A very hard subject to write about but so well done. A different angle to most books about the holocaust, a topic that many people might not know about. Well done to PGR Wright.
