    The reality of the time is so accurate and it is very professional in that level, surviving each day was so intriguing for the family and the acts that followed were so different and interesting, I really liked the way how the Author portrayed the National Socialist movement, it felt like I saw a movie within the movie! The book is really unputdownable and it has 600 pages which will feel to you like 6 because the story is so unique and interesting you wouldn't want to finish!

    .

    The true story of the brave women were so incredibly powerful, they tried to fight the injustice being done to the oppressed during the war! All the character's actions are focused on taking down the Nazis! You'll enjoy every detail of the book that has taken part in one of the worst moment of Human's history!

    .

    The novel follows with four different main characters, we meet Midred an American girl who is a teacher in Berlin, she's married to Arvid Harnack! The second character is Greta who is a Writer, her love romance hasn't still been free from different reasons so she's back to Germany from Wisconsin! Then we meet Sara Weits a Jewish girl, and a student of Mildred's ! And the end we will meet martha Dodd the daughter of the American Ambassador who is able to help in ways no one else can! The mixed company will make this historical fiction a mind-blowing story which you'll fall in love!

    .

    I enjoyed the experience of the brave women so much, the feelings were so strong and the background was set in such a vivid old amazing details! The restrictive laws, food cuts and the fear of Berlin's citizens were fascinating, the Author's research must've been so deep as the book is more than a five stars for us!

    The ending of the book is powerful and really emotional, we highly recommend you to read this wonderful book!!

    Just started this book and feel an eerie similarity to our current situation in the United States as the unthinkable builds in 1930's Germany. Well written if not fast paced. The slow pace of the book provides a sense of the unthinkable unfolding and reminds the reader of how glacial change can be destructive, perhaps more so than a catastrophic sudden shift. A lengthy book reflective of the topic and the period.

    This is my first experience with Chiaverini and I am impressed. From 1929 through 1946, three women look on in horror as the Nazi Party rises and comes into power. Mildred Harnack is an American intellectual married to a German and Greta Kuckhoff is a hopeful German writer formerly enrolled at the University of Wisconsin where she met the Harnacks. Their stories are factual and both are members of the Red Orchestra, a resistance cell operating in Berlin. Sara Weitz is a Jewish-German literature

    This is my first experience with Chiaverini and I am impressed. From 1929 through 1946, three women look on in horror as the Nazi Party rises and comes into power. Mildred Harnack is an American intellectual married to a German and Greta Kuckhoff is a hopeful German writer formerly enrolled at the University of Wisconsin where she met the Harnacks. Their stories are factual and both are members of the Red Orchestra, a resistance cell operating in Berlin. Sara Weitz is a Jewish-German literature student and enrolled in Harnack’s lectures. She is a composite of Jewish members of the Red Orchestra. Having read a number of WWII nonfiction books, the historical accuracy is probably the best I’ve read within the subgenre of historical fiction. Don’t expect a rip roaring WWII adventure full of blowing up bridges and railroad tracks, carefully planned assassinations or harrowing escapes from the Nazis. Rather, this is a story of brave women committing espionage and acts of protest against an evil fascist regime.

    Mildred Fish is a graduate student from Wisconsin. She marries a German economist, Arvid Harnack, and moves with him to Germany. Berlin in the 1930s is swimming with intellectuals, and the newlyweds are enjoying their work and social lives.

    At the same time, we all know Hitler and his Nazi party are rising in power. Mildred and Arvid decide to resist. Mildred begins by collecting intelligence for the US. Her friends, Greta and Sara, collect information from all manner of sources, including Nazi officials. They build a network to retrieve and share intelligence.

    Mildred and her group work for years until they are exposed.

    Resistance Women is inspired by true events. I was completely enamored with Mildred, her devotion to doing what’s right, and how she helped build a network of individuals who for years provided insider information she could bravely and boldly share for the good of the entire world.

    Resistance Women is a story to sink into, to relax and explore, to worry, to feel, and to think. Would you do the same thing these three women did? The book is thoughtful, thought-provoking, powerful, and inspiring. The author’s note including information on the real people is not to be missed!

    I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.

    --- Edmund Burke

    Beginning in June of 1929, this story shares the stories of several women living in Germany during the rise of the Nazi Party, and the stories of those whose lives connected with theirs. Two of these women, Mildred Harnack and Greta Kuckhoff, were based on their real lives, living and operating as members of the resistance in Germany, through the Red Orchestra. The third woman, Sara Weitz, was a character based on the multiple Jewish-German women who were also members of the Red Orchestra,

    also called the Red Chapel by the Gestapo. The Red Orchestra being a conglomeration of separate resistance groups united in the belief that the evil incarnate in this regime must be thwarted.

    Of these three women, one is an American, Mildred Harnack, a teacher in Berlin whose husband, Arvid, is German. Mildred meets Greta, an aspiring author, and Arvid when she is a student at the University of Wisconsin. Once they are in Germany, Sara Weitz meets Harnack through her lectures. Aiding these three women is Martha Dodd whose father is the American ambassador to Germany.

    This was a fascinating look at this time and place, how things changed at a pace that had most of the population turn a blind eye to the changes, a little here, a little there, until it was too late. And evil triumphed, if for a time. The focus, however, isn’t on the war or the concentration camps, but on these women who put their lives on the line to end the spread of this evil.

    At 594 pages, this was not a fast read, or leisurely, but it was eye opening and very thought-provoking to read.
