Teaser Tuesday...The Diplomat's Wife

I found a copy of Pam Jenoff's The Diplomat's Wife for a measly two bucks at a secondhand store recently and have decided that I'm going to plunge into it!  Because of that, here's a teaser:

"'Before we could escape, the Kommandant found Emma and discovered that she was Jewish.' I recount hiding in the shadows, watching the Kommandant confront Emma.  'I had hoped she might be able to somehow talk her way out of it.  He seemed to have genuine feelings for her so I thought he might understand.  But when he pulled out his gun, I had to do something.  I shot him.'" (112)


Oh man...I love novels set during this time period.  Despite the horrific atrocities that occurred, for some reason it is my favorite point in history.  I'm excited for this read.

  1. I hope you are enjoying this one. I loved it. Did you read The Kommandant's Girl first?

  2. I haven't read The Kommandant's Girl, though it is on my list of books to read. Should I read that first? I've just started it (and am liking it so far).
