Between These Walls

I loved that the main character give back what is due to the victims. It really is beautiful to read that scene.

About The Book

May 1945

In the dying days of WW II on the American occupied side of Germany’s Elbe River, US Army Medical Corps Colonel Samuel Singer comes upon the shot-up wreck of a smouldering SS Staff car, with a badly injured driver, nearby a dead German Army officer carrying the ID of a Nazi war criminal, and a young blonde woman, also dead in the back seat.

July 1988

Art curator Daniel Singer, the adopted son of Colonel Singer receives a mysterious package—a large brown envelope, sealed with security tape—from West Berlin. He can’t help but think that there’s something important within the envelope. But what?

Daniel’s quest to learn about the package’s contents leads him on a surprising voyage of discovery about his own roots, including an encounter with the Mossad, Israel’s top secret spy agency. As he searches, he unlocks the history and secrets of three families—one American and two German—following them through tumultuous times, from the dying days of WWI to the rise of Adolf Hitler, WWII, the Holocaust, the birth of the State of Israel and three Middle East wars.

As Daniel learns about duty, honour, sacrifice, and the familial ties that bind us all, he will be faced with a life-altering choice—and the opportunity to right the most heinous of wrongs.

” Between These Walls was most certainly one of those ‘out of my norm’ reads, but I have to admit – I was intrigued from the very start. “
