Staff Reviews

The little town of Bethehem has a former residence and museum dedicated to a real life heronie of WWII that you've never heard of: Caroline Ferriday. She was a beautiful New York socialite and actress who made a departure from her glamorous lifestyle to support an unfortunate group of women known as The Rabbits. They were singled out for experimentation in an all female concentration camp. Tragic story for sure, but also very inspirational and well worth your reading time. Book club members will want to combine a discussion of the book with a trip to the musuem in Bethehem.

“Lilac Girls is a powerful and moving debut told through the voices of three women during World War II. Caroline is a New York socialite working at the French consulate and sending care packages to French orphans. Kasia, a young Polish girl, is arrested for helping the underground resistance and sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp. Herta is the only female German surgeon stationed at Ravensbruck. The way these three women's lives intersect both during and after the war will grip you and tug at your heartstrings. I would recommend this to anyone who loved Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale.”
