Book/Novel Title: The Stolen Child
Hide Karl in plain sight.That was the idea. It was meant to be foolproof.Who would think of finding an Aryan-looking Jewish child in the household of a high-ranking Nazi officer?What could possibly go wrong?When four-year-old Karl, Kara’s son, suddenly disappears, Kara’s worst fear becomes her painful reality. Has someone seen through her cover?An increasingly frustrating search for the missing boy ensues. Kara is succored by Oskar, an SS officer who would do anything to have Kara’s love. His compassion is in stark contrast to his office’s macabre nature.As her world is turned upside down, the grim nature of the Third Reich becomes much more apparent to Kara. The rot has eaten deep into many German hearts, even that of her beloved sister Anka.As a fog of fear and evil envelops Kara’s life, the hope of a love she had always ached for stirs ever so slightly.How far would one go to get a hold of what they so desperately want?Will Kara see her son ever again?Stolen Child is the second book in Roberta Kagan’s totally gripping WW2 historical series: Jews, The Third Reich, and a Web of Secrets.Praise for “My Son’s Secret” (first in series):⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Roberta Kagan writes vivid, realistic Holocaust novels in which the reader can really identify with the characters” — Julie, Goodreads⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I couldn’t put this down, I sat up all night reading it. At the end of every chapter I’d think, just one more then I’ll go to sleep, before I knew it the sun was coming up and I’d reached the end” — John, Goodreads⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Another winner for me. Yet again Roberta has surpassed herself with her brand new series” — Carol, Goodreads⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Evocative, heart crushing, intense and poignantly beautiful, this nonlinear book set mainly in 1930s Germany takes the reader’s mind in all directions. It quickly took me into a private world. I did not want it to end, yet was almost desperate to find out which layers would be revealed next” — Brenda, Goodreads⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My Son’s Secret by Roberta Kagan is an emotionally moving, remarkable story set during WW2. It clearly portrays the events that happened during the war and within the Jewish communities. At times, I had a hard time reading the events that happened but the story also had an underlying theme of hope, love and perseverance” — Renee, GoodreadsRead more
Another page turning book from Roberta Kagan. This writer never ceases to amaze me with her writing. So many emotions I get while resting her books. Thank you
As I read this book I thought something was missing. Then I realized that this was book 2. I had not read the first book and some important parts of the story. I will then eventually read the third part of the story. This series must be read in order
I felt so sorry for the girl and her son . Husband was a sociopath. I am amazed how hard this war was . The mystery is wonderful.the writing is beautiful.
Way to much crying.Over and over again.Cry and then cry some more.Oy vey !Intricate plot goes overboard. I did not like this book.Only action happens in the last few chapters. Thumbs down……………..
