Finding Rebecca


Nothing could keep Christopher and Rebecca apart: not her abusive parents, or even the fiancé she brought home after running away to England. But when World War II finally strikes the island of Jersey, the Nazi invaders ship Rebecca to Europe as part of Hitler’s Final Solution against the Jewish population.

After Christopher and his family are deported back to their native Germany, he volunteers for the Nazi SS, desperate to save the woman he loves. He is posted to Auschwitz and finds himself put in control of the money stolen from the victims of the gas chambers. As Christopher searches for Rebecca, he struggles to not only maintain his cover, but also the grip on his soul. Managing the river of tainted money flowing through the horrific world of Auschwitz may give him unexpected opportunities. But will it give him the strength to accept a brave new fate that could change his life—and others’ lives—forever?

    I'll read most anything about World War II and the Holocaust, specifically, because I find it morbidly fascinating. So obviously this book was appealing and with the good reviews, I figured it would b...

    I just finished Finding Rebecca and all I can say is "WOW". It was extremely hard to read some of the scenes, and not because they were overly graphic, but because it left a mental picture, and a feel...

    I found this novel to be your typical holocaust novel in that it was a story had all the elements of novels taking place in this time frame. Lovers torn apart by war, the horrors of the concentration ...

    This is lovely love story set against the backdrop of the horrors of WWII. I wanted to rate it higher, but I found the writing stilted at times, and often did not feel the emotions the author was tryi...
