Sisters of War by Lana Kortchik is a fascinating WWII novel. I was deeply immersed inside of this book. From the first page to the last, my attention was hooked. I felt the time period come alive among the pages. The intensity of the war and all the fears it caused were felt. I wanted to save all the characters. This book was focused in the Soviet Union. The people thought they would be safe from Hitler. Then, the cities around them fell to the Nazis and so did their city. The horror of it all was relived in this book. I cried so much. Pain, loss, danger, and hope were mixed together in every scene. The main characters were taking the situation in a day-by-day process. Thinking about the future…was too much to hope for if they all made it alive. Families were torn apart, friends were separated, innocent people shot and killed for no reason at all. Betrayal, secrets, and love all could be found in the impressive novel. I enjoyed this historical journey and recommend it to all readers.
