I probably need to shy away from anything that is written about Nazi Germany but there is so much potential for good material there and so much excellence in some of the things already written that I find myself being pulled in again and again Can you say cliche You cannot humanize a man who runs a concentration camp by having him kill a fellow soldier who kills a Jewish woman while arresting her husband Why can t you tell the story of a normal German family who find themselves almost automatically joining the Nazi party but aren t fanatics without having the story of a saved Jew interwoven I doubt the American servicemen were so charming that every German girl fell hopelessly in love with one look She might have explored the Lebensborn Progam which is introduced as a side track and take a route that isn t already over trodden but she didn tI m sorry to say that I found her characters stilted and I never felt connected to any of them The bouncing between then and now with the parallel stories of Elsie our WWII German and Reba our modern day American distracted rather than added to the story Had she stuck to Elsie s story alone I might have remained a bit engaged but the stops and starts killed whatever chance there was of caring for the characters Then there was the attempt to draw similarities between the Nazi treatment of Jews and the mission of the border patrol in Texas She may see those as two sides of the same coin but it was ludicrous in my mind Two very different issues that should be treated as such One group is trying to destroy an entire segment of the population by murdering themthe other is trying to protect a national border from illegal entry You might find flaws in the later and you can surely find tragedy there but they are far from having anything in commonI considered DNFing at several points but stuck it out to the end It didn t really matter she had lost me far before the end
