Wow....just, wow. That's exactly what I thought when I finished reading Darker the Night, the haunting and interesting story inspired by a true life story by author Lisa London. Follow protagonist Hedy as she matures from a child raised as part of Hitler's Youth Group to a young woman determined to serve the Nazi troops through her skills as a physical therapist, and then onto a time when her pride in her country is torn apart when the horrific actions of the Nazis are made public, and the aftermath of the horrors of World War II. Hedy's development as a person and the changes in her life as the war progresses, including the introduction of a charming American love interest, is a story that will keep readers turning the pages from the start all the way to the very end.
I very much enjoyed Darker the Night. Exploring a much studied time period from a viewpoint not often considered, this book, while a work of fiction, provides an incredibly realistic and interesting glimpse into the past. Author Lisa London has done a fantastic job in creating a character in Hedy that readers will connect with, relate to, and ultimately care about very much. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author, I'm not sure what is. I highly recommend Darker the Night to any reader who enjoys an excellent work of historical fiction. I look forward to reading more from the very talented author, Lisa London, as soon as I possible can. If it's anything like Darker the Night, it will absolutely be worth a read!
