Of all the books I've read,I believe this is one of my hands-down favorite. This book deserve 10 stars...instead of 5. Beautifully written and deeply moving. A exceptional story that captures the feeling of love...about one women surviving a nazi prison camp. In this skillfully written story you will get a thrilling look at the beginning of the cold war as well as a heartrending love story about two very brave people. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The Diplomat's Wife
by Pam Jenoff

I couldn't put it down. This book continues developing the story of "The Kommandant' s Girl," which is Pam Jenoff's first book. Great story.

After working in the Jewish resistance in Kraków, Poland, Marta Nedermann is rescued from a Nazi prison by American soldiers. A simple gesture of human comfort by a soldier named Paul is etched in her mind, and when she sees him again in a camp for displaced persons in Salzburg, Marta is overjoyed. They meet again in Paris and become engaged, only to have Paul die in a plane crash. Marta is now scared, pregnant, and alone in a strange city. Simon Gold, an English diplomat, needs her language skills, and he wants her as well. They marry, and two years later, the English government taps Marta for help in finding a traitor in the British intelligence corps, sending her on an undercover mission that entails revisiting her past.
