Publisher's Summary

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.

This rendition will put you to sleep.

Would you try another book from Roberta Kagan and/or Kevin S. Martin?

I'm unsure of the author but will definitely avoid this narrator!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

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.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This narrator was so monotone that I couldn't concentrate on the jest of the story.

Where did they find the reader?

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.

Good story

Would you consider the audio edition of All My Love, Detrick to be better than the print version?

No

Who was your favorite character and why?

Detrick

How did the narrator detract from the book?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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).

Heart-rendingly beautiful & sad

Well written, with engaging characters, this story of war & oppression is both entertaining & thought-provoking, leaving the reader sad, but fulfilled.

Poor audio quality

The reader was all right, but he sounded as if he was reading from a hole.
