Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

Club Rating: 4.8

This had a LOT of great discussion - about the 3 characters, Herta, Kasia and Caroline, their perspectives, moving on afterwards The author did a beautiful job of capturing so much with this historical fiction book. The hierarchy and nuances of the camp were very interesting. Some didn't care for Caroline while others felt that it showed how different all the perspectives were depending on where they lived.  Some felt that the ending was very rushed to tie up all the ends. Some questioned what the author chose to focus on in the 3 stories.
