The human mind and spirit can be amazingly resilient. I can’t fathom being a prisoner in a Nazi death camp, but I feel like I visited one thru the eyes and heart of Helen. This is an important book, that answered some questions I had regarding how this all happened. Why did so many Jewish people not believe this was going to happen?
on March 19, 2017
This book is definitely a tear jerker! A great book but entirely sad! I could not put the book down
on March 18, 2017
A powerful story of survival against incredible odds.
I felt the characters rang true throughout the book. While not the most brutal description of incarceration by evil this is still a difficult book to read at times. The ending was both hopeful and believable.
on March 17, 2017
A very heart felt and well written book. It exposed more horrors of Nazi Germany. Helen is a brave character.

Superb read and could not put the book down, so sad and yet shows how humans can get through the hardest of times.

I was a little sceptical as only based on fact, but thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.highly recommended read

I’ll admit to being somewhat of an obsessive when it comes to World War II stories.
Reading about the horrors faced by so many, oh so many people, only raises more questions in my mind. Why did this happen? How could we let this happen? How do we stop it from happening again? Fortunately, I live in a time and place where asking these questions will not get me shot – unlike the fate bestowed on all too many in this book.
The reality of events is brought to life by the author’s immersive approach to telling us about the life of young Helen Stein. She takes us through the years, from innocence to confusion, from hiding out and then surviving the death camps to liberation and shows us how these atrocities affected her both then and now as an adult.
It’s a moving and emotional tale that doesn’t hold back on the details – it’s refreshingly vivid and the author is not afraid to tell it like it happened.
Another author whose books have to go straight to the top of my reading pile.

Charlie was abused by his owner and dumped at the Carson City kill shelter. He waited and waited and when he was on the to-be-put-down list The Dream Team Angel Rescue stepped up to save him. He was taken straight to the vet extremely emaciated with a damaged painful right eye. The eye had to be removed. He is recovering now in a wonderful new home where he is learning what it is to be loved and trust again.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

AMAZON

on February 22, 2017
Very good book. Characters were interesting and the pace was perfect. The book reminds you that no matter what the circumstances we are still humans and need the support we get from others to help when we are down or scared. Life matters was the theme but it also showed that while life matters it is how you maintain your compassion for others is what makes life matter.

 

 

GOODREADS

Vicki

Feb 24, 2017 Vicki***** rated it was amazing
Love historical fiction, especially during the WWII Era. Well written, easy read. I was sucked into the storyline immediately and could not put this book down. The imagery was vivid and I felt I walked alongside Helen and witnessed first hand the love, joy, sadness, sorrow, fright, torment and abuse she endured as she told her story. The book left me wanting to learn more of her story after relocating to the US.

Deb

Feb 22, 2017 Deb **** rated it really liked it

This was a good read. It was from a perspective of a Jewish girl, Helen, whose childhood joined the Hitler Youth Movement to hide his relationship with an “undesirable” person. After Kristallnacht, Helen’s friend risks his life to save her and her brother from Hitler’s persecution of the Jews.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

Bernie

Feb 19, 2017 Bernie rated it ***** it was amazing
This book is about the struggles of Helen, her family and her best friend Max to survive in Germany when Hitler reigned in the 1940’s. The problem is that her family is jewish and her best friend is not the perfect aryan that Hitler desires to be a part of his new regime. This book was a fast paced, page turner ; I enjoyed it very much.

170 dogs freed from kill shelters

I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has purchased, read, and taken the time to review one of my books. All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Agatha, Bruce, Martin, Peanut, Grace, Annie, Verina & her 7 puppies, Ruthie, Tiffany and Werner (see photos below) out of kill shelters. We’re off to a good start in 2017 with the freedom of 170 dogs. In in 2016, 250 dogs were freed. In 2015, 148 dogs were freed.

AND please for everyone who’s purchased a book could I humbly ask you to write a review when you’ve completed the read.  Amazon promotes and ranks books according to number of reviews in addition to sales. Every voice helps spread the word and that is an energy that can help a dog.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

on February 15, 2017
I highly recommend reading this book. In light of recent U.S. and world events…the similarities are startling and horrifyingly similar.
