Wow, this book was mesmerizing! For my followers, this novel about World War II in a small town in Poland is not my normal read. I loved it but I am warning you that it contains brief language that comes with war and tragedy. The emotional story covers a young Jewish girl’s saga as safe changes into nightmare when the Germans take over her home, her town, and her life. Survival remains constant and reality is harsh, rude, and beyond imagination.
Lena, now an elderly woman, presents her past to an attorney, Cat and her P.I. husband, Liam hoping they can find a set of twins left behind in Europe 70 years ago born to her best friend, Karolina. She promised her she would find them and now, as her life comes to a close she must locate them to assuage her guilt.
The writing is excellent, the characters deep, and the pace fast. I highly recommend Karolina’s Twins. I feel we must never forget the travesties of the Nazi regime on the Jewish population and those who assisted them. This novel does that. Thank you, Ronald Balson for writing it.
