‘The German Midwife is a book to harrow the soul and linger long in the mind. Anke, a German midwife sent to a labor camp for aiding Jewish mothers against Third Reich law, is whisked from hell-scape to eerie luxury when she is brought to Hitler's private mountain estate to care for his pregnant mistress Eva Braun. Mandy Robotham writes movingly of the eternal human struggle to preserve reverence for life in the midst of genocide and horror. A powerful, haunting debut.’ Kate Quinn

The cruelty and deprivations endured by German civilians - German on German - during WW2 exposes a deep flaw in the Teutonic makeup, hopefully never to resurface. Such inhumane acts are well documented elsewhere, but Ms Robotham paints them in a way to be lived and understood over 70 years later. She is an accomplished wordsmith who has produced an excellent first work.
This is a little gem of a book, Mandy Robotham tells a tale that is so realistic that the reader is left asking 'What if...'. I recommend this book to all lovers of Historical Fiction.
My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I thought this book was hauntingly beautiful and thought provoking. I was thoroughly immersed in the story from the beginning. The characters are well drawn and captivating .
It is certainly an interesting, and scary, prospect that Hitler could have fathered a child in his lifetime. 3.5 stars.
Worth a read.
