Karolina’s Twins was simply amazing. This book captured me and held me, it was so captivating. I found myself wanting to skip doing stuff because I didn’t want to stop reading. The present day story with her back story really made this 2 books in one. I loved it so much and will be buying a hardback as soon as it comes out. This book is for every reader that loves WWII stories. I read the author loosely based this on a real story. I can’t even imagine the horrors they and she experienced and would like to thank her and the author for sharing this story. It has touched me and will stay with me always. Karolina’s Twins is my number 1 read of 2016 and top 20 of all time!
She made a promise in desperation Now it’s time to keep it Lena Woodward, elegant and poised, has lived a comfortable life among Chicago Society since she immigrated to the US and began a new life at the end of World War II. But now something has resurfaced that Lena cannot ignore: an unfulfilled promise she made long ago that can no longer stay buried. Driven to renew the quest that still keeps her awake at night, Lena enlists the help of lawyer Catherine Lockhart and private investigator Liam Taggart. Behind Lena’s stoic facade are memories that will no longer be contained. She begins to recount a tale, harkening back to her harrowing past in Nazi-occupied Poland, of the bond she shared with her childhood friend Karolina. Karolina was vivacious and beautiful, athletic and charismatic, and Lena has cherished the memory of their friendship her whole life. But there is something about the story that is unfinished, questions that must be answered about what is true and what is not, and what Lena is willing to risk to uncover the past. Has the real story been hidden these many years? And if so, why? Two girls, coming of age in a dangerous time, bearers of secrets that only they could share. Just when you think there could not be anything new to ferret out from World War II comes Karolina’s Twins, a spellbinding new novel by the bestselling author of Once We Were Brothers and Saving Sophie. In this richly woven tale of love, survival and resilience during some of the darkest hours, the unbreakable bond between girlhood friends will have consequences into the future and beyond.
