E-book Assessment: THE BOOK OF LOST NAMES by @kristinharmel Harmel
Style: Historic Fiction
In 1942, Eva labored with the Resistance as a doc forger to assist fellow Jews escape Nazi-occupied France. Many years later, she’s shocked when she spots the e-book she dubbed “The E-book of Misplaced Names” in a newspaper article. Inside the pages of this e-book, she used the Fabinacci sequence as a part of a secret code to file the true names of all of the Jewish youngsters so that they’d always remember their true identities.
Primarily based on true tales about forgers and alternating between the previous and the current, this was one other fascinating, immersive, and distinctive story about WWII. I loved studying in regards to the doc forgers (and could not assist however marvel if I would be good at it) and, in fact, there was a contact of romance too. The sudden ending made me tear up.
