Rmer protege Sarah Weber back to Berlin As Margarethe confronts painful events that occurred during the war she must learn both to forgive and be forgive. I have to confess that I hesitated to read this series because of the setting in which the stories took place Once I read the first book I couldn t wait for the other two books to be released Yes there are hardships in these novels however Graf does a beautiful job of writing about the humanity and the resilience of people and the transformative power of love The main character throughout the stories is Margarethe who at first I thought was going to be the typical ice princess until you get to know the character and realize that she epitomized aristocratic old German values because that s the culture she grew up in What is the astounding is the fact that beneath her apparent hard shell she remained a kind generous loving and considerate person The way that Graf portrayed her throughout the series was the best character development I have ever read she is a gifted writerThis story while part of a series can certainly be a standalone novel The saga picks up in this novel at the end of world war two and the aftermath of the horrific violence that Margarethe endured and her incredible journey of healing the many losses in her life especially that of her dignity She s able to do this with the help of nuns and Sarah a character who appeared in a previous novel who gently with incredible sensitivity helps Margarethe get back to the woman she was The transformation of Margarethe from the beginning of this novel to the last page left me breathless when I thought about it Graf took me on an incredible journey that was not only emotional but incredibly reaffirming of the goodness of people and what true love can bring out in a personI highly recommend this book and the complete series because it is a incredible experience from start to finish

The problem with reading historical fiction is that you eventually run up againsthistory Especially one set in a time as particularly brutal and horrific as World War II When I first found out that the seuel to Occasions of Sin set in the 1930s Germany was out it piued my interest right away as that would mean the author is taking the characters through even interesting times The way I imagined things or the way I wanted it to happen was for our characters to go through the horrors of war and capitulation and somehow emerge in one piece at least physically A happy ever after after WWII Its not impossible Unrealistic maybe Overly optimistic I guess But not impossible right Alas the author doesn t write fairy tales It s hard to review this book without spoilers And harder still not to spoil things for readers who haven t read the first two books So if you love lush historical fiction with a great ff romance and amazing characterizations I highly recommend the series Start with the first book Occasions of Sin You ll be mesmerized When I reached the end of the second book Lies of Omission I inadvertently swiped past the last page on my e reader and came face to face with the blurb for the third Its fairly vague but there is an ominous hint My stomach fell out once my brain realized what my eyes just read Would the author really do that As in view spoiler kill off my favorite character hide spoiler
