Also, there are some new advance reviews rolling in, one of which by a favorite historical author of mine, Kathryn Atwood! I was so excited to read her review!
A non-fiction writer can bring you quite close to a historical time period. But a good historical fiction writer can bring you all the way into the room. Emily Ann Putzke has done that with Resist. While reading Putzke’s vivid , accurate descriptions, I became closer to the Scholl’s story than I ever thought possible and found myself rooting all over again for these idealistic young Germans who thought they could topple the Nazi regime with their words.
I don’t normally read much historical fiction but because Putzke is an excellent writer and has also done her homework, one never gets the sense that she is trying to draw attention to her own writing, excellent though it is. Instead, she keeps all the attention on the Scholls and their friends.
I definitely recommend this marvelous book!
