A must read.
In 1919, Helen Stein born to a Jewish family in Berlin, Germany and raised with love with her three siblings. She is happy to find her best friend in Max; forced to play a role in the German army. The story weaved during the time of World War II. How a girl in Auschwitz tortured and tormented, seeing death and brutality, midst of blood bath and hypocrites mocking and laughing at the pain of the people and finding pleasure in hurting and killing people whose only crime is that they are Jews and in a position of helplessness.
A treat to historical fiction reader. It is not only about history and the story interweaved around the period. The way the story unfolds and captivates the reader is phenomenal. The author put the well-researched documented historical facts remarkably. The book is admirable and brilliant. The story touched the heart of the readers and compels to ask what kind of humans would do such barbaric act with another human.
A brilliant writer of books possesses many qualities: a journalist’s nose for a great story and the chops to tell it superbly; a professor’s acute facility for language; a Pulitzer Prize winner’s razor sharp mind that intuits every necessary plot angle; a mystic’s steadfast soul charging headlong into its matchless destiny; and a warrior’s unwavering courage despite any odds, any costs. Author Paulette Mahurin embodies all of those qualities. The part of her I admire the most, however, is her fearlessness–that brave heart–that heart that goes places too many other authors avoid for fear of the consequences to their career, their adherence to political correctness–places that need exposing to tell the whole truth. Mahurin sees injustice; she hates injustice; she wants to right injustice, and she proclaims it to the world in her writing. She wants to make a difference, and I have to believe she does just that, and she does it extraordinarily well in her “The Seven Year Dress.”
I am a student of World War II. I have a library overflowing with tomes on the subject, both non-fiction and fiction. This excellent work of historical fiction will hold a special place among them, and is one I will return to again and again.
