Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

Plots, relationships, and realities twist nonstop in Sharon Cameron's post-World War II thriller, as an 18-year-old former Nazi princess is plunged into espionage by her American captor/benefactors. Amid rape, murder, torture, and other wartime atrocities, Bluebird pits relentless darkness and treachery against defiant, equally relentless kindness as a backdrop to Eva’s moral struggles in impossible situations. Extremely well researched, with much relevant and often horrific history in the afterword, it’s sometimes a bit of a pile-on as Cameron tries to pack it all into the story.
