The Secret Society of Salzburg by Renee Ryan // Review

My Review: 

The story of two women, an opera singer and an aspiring artist who risk it all to help Jews escape the wrath of the Nazis. 

A gripping historical read, compelling characters and courageous women, as they face the growing unrest in Austria and Germany in the first rumblings of WWII. Based on a true story this is a rich historical novel of love and sacrifice. 

Elsa is a gifted singer, admired by Hitler, but she hides a dangerous secret of Jewish heritage. Her unlikely friendship with Vera and Hattie Featherstone allows them to work together to help Jews escape Germany. The story follows Elsa in two separate timelines, and I admired her strength throughout. 

Overall, a engaging and heartbreaking read, compelling and well written. Bringing to life treacherous times, and the courage of remarkable women.  

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
