children You ll meet Marianne The Commander of the wives and Children Marianne was married to Albreht Von Lingenfels from a long line of revered German Generals who wanted to help bring Hitler to the court of law with the support of the outside world Connie Fledermann from an old once rich junker family was another character you ll meet early in this story My image of this great man never ever left me Still hasn t I credit author Jessica Shattuck for this powerful memory achievement With very few words she kept a character alive for me who dies early through the rest of her storytelling Connie and Albreht had spent a few years working together assisting victims of the national Socialists Jews who wanted to emigrate imprisoned Communists artists whose work were banned Both men Albreht and Connie friends with a purposeunderstood how the world saw their countryand were shameful to be associated with Germany this way But it was Connie who had given up on the law he was a believer in direct action He felt it was his duty to actively work to defeat Hitler Marriane was married to Albreht They had 3 children Fritz Elizabeth and KatharineConnie was Marianne s oldest friend Connie held Marianne in the highest regard his sternest advisorthe person who keeps him most honest Sometimes I was sad that he and Marianne never married silly thought I guess but I really admired and felt the depths of their malefemale friendship Powerful special beautiful and cut short Connie and Albreht both were hung in the war The Prologue in The Women in The Castle is sooooooo good I read it 3 times The 3rd time I read it was after I finished the entire story I ve been so tempted to include in excerpt I like so much from the prologue I ve debated and debated but have chosen not toobut I felt it was very special and literally sprinkled love honor dignity and purpose throughout the rest of the novel Marianne was raised to value education than domesticity Not particularly a knockout beauty but she was part of the men s conversations Marianne was the last man standing Men trusted and respected who she was Had Marianne been a man she would have been killed too Benita was younger physically beautifulwith no interest in politics Connie once told Marriane that Benita is a simple girl and she won t deserve whatever mess I might drag her into Connie asked Marianne to promise to look after Benita and their not yet born child if anything should happen to him Martin Constantine Flederman was Connie and Benita s child His name was changed to Martin Schmidtas all the children of the war were good ordinary German names Marianne could never have predicted years ago just how much she would be involved with watching over Benita and her son Martin Ania Grabarek and her two sons Anselm and Wolfgang also are a part of this story Anita s husband was in the Polish Foreign Office before the war and then in the military and then in the Home Army then sent to an extermination camp Burg Lingenfels was once a beautiful grand Castle Before the war Marianne s husband Albreht s great aunt Frau von Lingenfels The Countress owned it She didn t live in it but she organize parties and picnics She was something of an eccentric After the warthe Castle was run down empty of fine furniture damp cold They did have a roof over their head and they live mostly in the kitchenYou get to know the children and given that the children had a father who was a traitor a man that wanted to kill Fuhrer it was important to educate the children about the reasons their father s were killed Could they do this without being prejudice Martin s father Connie lived in the shadow as a hero from the teachings of Marianne yet his own mother never mentioned him Benita spent time in prison because of what her husband did Marianne never had to So we see early that the moral issues of being a traitor in ones own country has many different points of view and emotions tied to those opinions and emotions As the story goes on we learn of what happen to each of these women Marianne Benita and Anita each had different background experiences Everyone has been damaged by the horrors of this warJessica Shattuck invites us to take a deeper look at personal responsibilityblame shame dishonor and moral conscience We look at the other side too honor loyalty and love The one thing Marianne Benita and Anita had in common is that each of their husbands were killed in this war They had children to raise Their future choices in part two begin to move them in different directions yet as they were rebuilding their individual lives the time spent in the early days after the war together in the run down Castle bonded them whether they liked each other or not Everyone was growing and changing The children too becoming young adults then adults I was on the verge of tears several times This is one of the best historical books I ve read where we see how much German s suffered not just Jews

Rotect their wives her fellow resistance widowsFirst Marianne rescues six year old Martin the son of her dearest childhood friend from a Nazi reeducation home Together they make their way across the smoldering wreckage of their homeland to Berlin where Martin’s mother the beautiful and naive Benita has fallen into the hands of occupying Red Army soldiers Then she locates Ania another resister’s wife and her two boys now refugees languishing in one of the many camps that house the millions displaced by the war As Marianne assembles this makeshift family from the ruins of her husband’s resistance movement she is certain their shared pain and circumstances will hold them together But she uickly discovers that the black and white highly principled world of her privileged. For all the horror of the official reports she and Albrecht had seen with their language of extermination and elimination they could not come close to conjuring this How could they There was no point of reference Later such footage would come to be so familiar it became unseen a kind of placeholder for human evil The first black and white glimpse of barbed wire dirt and nakedness cautioned viewers look away But in this moment in the first unveiling it was nothing she or anyone else had ever seen And it was impossible to look away She looked and trembled in her seatI ve always heard it discussed on just how could the German people all condone what was going on in their country under Hitler s reign This book takes you there And sadly I m probably not going to be able to convey how powerful the book isIt starts in a Bavarian castle at a party Marianne and her husband Albrecht are hosting news comes to them of destruction taking place that will later be known as Kristallnacht Marianne is not a woman that lets things go on around her without knowing what is going on so she enters a room where her husband her best friend Connie and others are talking about how scared they are of what is becoming of their country They don t agree with Hitler s politics Connie who Marianne is secretly in love with introduces later his new fiance A poor girl named Benita He makes Marianne promise to him to always look after his wife and son should something happen to himThings do happen Connie and Albrecht join in on a plot to assassinate Hitler and it fails They are put to death and Benita is thrown into prison even though she was totally clueless Marianne fights to find their child and get Benita back so that she can fulfill her promise They make their way across a war torn Germany back to the castle which is now crumbling Along the way they pick up Ania and her two sons There is a whole lot of secrets bound by these women in that castle They know that the world around them is deeply changed forever but so have theyThis book isn t a pretty picture of anything It tells how each of these women faced what they were challenged with wide open eyes She felt the pulse of the lives lived inside the mean little houses she passed selfish or generous kind or unkind ugly or tolerable almost all of them sad And she saw the histories of the people passing by like x rays stamped on their faces ugly mutinous tracings of dark and light a woman who ratted out a neighbor a man who had shot children a soldier who had held his dying friend in his arms Yet here they were carrying groceries holding children s hands turning their collars up against the wind As if their moments of truth the decisions by which they would be judged and would judge themselves hadn t already come and passed What a sham this new German present was An irrelevant time a mad scramble to cast votes after the verdict had already been reachedSome of this sounds so familiar to me They say history repeats itself I hope this time in history stays never repeated forever Not forgotten though educate yourself Step back from your hate even though you don t see it as hate and educate yourselves You would hope that with all the ways to learn that are available today that people wouldButOn the news and my stupid Facebook feed though you would wonder I see hate from BOTH sides No one will admit that they have the wrong viewpoint They become keyboard commandos for their cause and never see that they might just be preaching some of that hate that they so strongly oppose What they are saying is right and nothing else will do Booksource I received a copy of this book from the publisher and then promptly lost it I m glad I found it again
