Reviews

It feels increasingly urgent to remember the lessons of World War II and I cannot think of anyone better than Svenja O'Donnell to navigate us through this particular slice of history. A lyrical, engrossing and essential read * Sathnam Sanghera *
Svenja O'Donnell turns her skills as an investigative journalist to unearthing a vitally important, powerful, and painful family story from World War Two. I was gripped as Inge's War revealed secrets within secrets, and exposed the dark realities of ordinary people's wartime lives to the light. * Suzannah Lipscomb *
Inge's War is a superbly nuanced reclamation of history and family secrets. With much empathy and skill, Svenja O'Donnell gives us a long withheld, powerful true story of love and suffering on the wrong side of the battle lines in World War II. It's a timely reminder that a nation's politics and people are not one and the same, that the innocent are sometimes punished for collective sins, and that women, across ages and cultures, have silently borne the brunt of war in ways we are only beginning to reckon with * Brian Van Reet, author of SPOILS *
I can't recommend this book highly enough ... a beautifully told story of tragedy and hope. * Ed Balls *
O'Donnell beautifully weaves together her family history with themes of love, guilt and betrayal * Jack Fairweather, bestselling author of the Costa-prize winning THE VOLUNTEER *
