Lilac Girls - Martha Hall Kelly

#LILACGIRLS  5 STARS!  AVAILABLE 4/5/16  BEST BOOK I'VE READ THIS YEAR!!!!  @marthahallkelly @randomhouse  The feelings going through me right now after having just finished this book are impossible to explain. I had already developed a fictional relationship with Caroline, Kasia, her sister and her mother, but to find out at the end that this was not entirely a fictional piece of work? I'm stunned. These ladies were so brave.

This was a wonderful piece of work. I absolutely loved reading this. I definitely was entertained, mortified and astounded by it all. The writing was awesome and the characters were so lifelike. I felt more like I was living this story than just reading it. I actually felt cold, hungry, fearful and scared. I found myself yelling at the girls "No, don't do that!.".

This was definitely one of the best books I've read in a while. I highly, definitely,thoroughly, sincerely and without a doubt recommend this book!

HUGE thanks to Random House Ballantine for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
