After being very moved by Unrelenting, the author’s first non-fictional account in her WWII Love and Resistance trilogy, I was really looking forward to this sequel.
Unyielding is as equally heart-breaking, informative and packed with suspense, tracing the story of her grandparents, who belonged to the German Resistance, in their battle against the Nazi regime. Through their friends and family, we also learn of the terrible hardships that faced not only the Jews, but most Germans, during WWII.
Infused with the love and humour of this most engaging couple, as they honeymoon in Europe, then start a family, and deal with different relatives, the author paints a very realistic view of that terrible era. The suspense of their resistance activities, coupled with the fact that people had to be careful about what they said, and to whom, since comments about the Nazi party often proved fatal, make this a riveting read.
And since Unyielding ends in such a suspenseful, terrifying situation, I can't wait to read the last book of this trilogy!
