Those Who save Us

I just finished Jenna Blum's first novel titled "Those who save us." I didn't love it and I didn't hate it but I couldn't put the book down. I just had to know what would happen next. I felt like reading the novel was an experience. The experience opened my eyes to the realities of World War Two, the unpardonable choices that were made for survival and the stain that these experiences leave on one's soul.
I don't know if I would recommend this book. It is very well researched and skillfully written but the story within it's pages might be hard for some to digest. With this said I am glad I read it for it has broadened my perspective. 
The book left little to be imagined. The scene's were graffic and uncomfortable and even at times offensive but having read it I am filled with gratitude for my freedom. I live in a free country. As a woman I am valued and respected as a human being. More than anything I am grateful for the freedom that the gospel of Jesus Christ offers me.
