TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Orphan's Tale

About The Orphan’s Tale

Paperback: 368 pages
Publisher: MIRA (February 21, 2017)
A powerful novel of friendship set in a traveling circus during World War II, The Orphan’s Tale introduces two extraordinary women and their harrowing stories of sacrifice and survival 
Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier and being forced to give up her baby. She lives above a small rail station, which she cleans in order to earn her keep… When Noa discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she is reminded of the child that was taken from her. And in a moment that will change the course of her life, she snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night.
Noa finds refuge with a German circus, but she must learn the flying trapeze act so she can blend in undetected, spurning the resentment of the lead aerialist, Astrid. At first rivals, Noa and Astrid soon forge a powerful bond. But as the facade that protects them proves increasingly tenuous, Noa and Astrid must decide whether their friendship is enough to save one another—or if the secrets that burn between them will destroy everything.

Review: If you are looking for a great read that involves WWII, you really have to read one of Pam Jenoff's books.

I  actually finished this book early this morning and I'm still unsure of the words that I can use how good it was.

Pam's books always have something to them that will get your emotions all riled up, and this book is no different.

Be prepared to cry, I know I did.

In a few words, this book was beautiful

Rating: 5 flowers
