    One thought on “Finding Rebecca”

    1. As it is in most books about the holocaust, there are scenes in this book that are so difficult to read but it is rightly so Even after so many years, it is still so important that we are reminded of these horrific acts Mothers are torn from their children women are herded off the trains and told they would be reunited with their children after their shower which we know was the gas chamber children are shot at point blank range We need to remember that even though this is a novel, these things [...]

    2. This book was like a rare gem that you aren t looking for, but just stumble across by mistake I had never heard of it or the author before and it showed up on the free kindle book list one day I m usually not a fan of love stories but I m facinated by the Holocaust so I decided to give it a shot and it turned into one of the best books I ve read in a long time It wasn t a cheesy romance kind of love story, it was a beautiful heartbreaking love story that spans several decades It literally breaks [...]

    3. So, I thought I am doomed to automatically love any WWII book In this book I did not feel the connection between the two MCs and I could not feel for them the way I should have.The story line, of a Jewish girl and a German, childhood friends, that falls in love and what happens to them during WWII, should have captivated me, but it failed to do so.It got better at around 80% but then it failed, for me again, with an ending that was rushed and not as emotionally right for the story.Shame

    4. 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 be a win.This book is about Christopher, a German national living on an island that is considered Great Britain s territory, and Rebecca, a Jewish national They meet as children and develop a close friendship sustained throughout the years, and Christopher s family becomes Rebecca s replacement family [...]

    5. I am so glad to have won this from First Reads It was an excellent book that I enjoyed very much even though it was sad to read about the atrocities at the concentration camp The story starts out harshly with Christopher as an SS officer at Auschwitz Then, we are taken to the beginning when a young Christopher first meets Rebecca on the isle of Jersey Theirs is a deep friendship and love, but outside forces strive to keep them apart, first Christopher s father and then World War II when Rebecca [...]

    6. 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 feeling of overwhelming sadness to think that this really did happen And it was just a small glimpse of the horror that took so many innocent lives I think that everyone should read this book, and never forget what kind of brutality really went on at those concentration camps Well done Mr Dempsey

    7. Eoin Dempsey s historical novel FINDING REBECCA is the sort of book you really want to be real You want to have some confidence that a real human being somewhere in time did the things that the character he s created did in the time and place he put them But even knowing that Dempsey s creation is fictional, that these things are products of imagination put into a series of real events this is enough to remind you that life isn t always cut and dry and still, in the end, sometimes the good guys [...]

    8. Wow What a diamond of a book It s powerful in its Holocaust brutality, in its vivid emotions, and characters If you re going to read any fictional book on the Holocaust, make it this one To me, it s the epitome of what a Holocaust fictional book should be Now that mention of Holocaust brutality Definitely keep that in mind while reading this This book pulls no punches It portrays the Holocaust exactly the way it was, with all the violence and evil that conveys From gassings, shootings, and the d [...]

    9. This book really touched me an insightful account of the dark history of the Holocaust The cattle trains arrived at the train station in Auschwitz There were 1200 people on the train, built for cattle transport The people huddled together on the train, their throats raw from thirst, and clinging to their children who would soon die The SS went into the train with guns drawn and dead bodies were thrown out of the rail cars The selection was started and two lines were formed, one of younger, fitte [...]

    10. Lately I have been interested in history fiction novels and specifically those about WWI and WWII My education as a young girl was deficient in the history past Christopher Columbus and very deficient regarding European history I have read a number of books trying to ascertain why the wars began what brought people to that place, what motivated them and what their lives were Now that I have read enough to allow me the knowledge of the why, I now want to read about people and their experiences in [...]

    11. Stayed up late finishing I love historical fiction and memoirs I own many memoirs of true accounts from the Holocaust I love the cover And was thrilled for a weekend to read Unfortunately, I thought it draggedt because of the subject matter but the pacing, unnecessary details, unfortunate skipping important moments I really wanted to like this novel and characters Was disappointed I didn t even feel connected to Rebecca or Christopher in this story just pity for the actual history we know is tru [...]

    12. I don t often wrote reviews any sine i have a toddler and a business, but, i feel i need to with this one I must admit, i almost stopped reading it i almost stopped several times, it is so moving, so sad, so terrifying, and so heartbreaking I am a history major with 2 masters degree s, i have taught the Holocaust to HS and MS students countless times over the last 12 years I have even gone to the WWII museum in NOLA several times I KNOW what happened, i believe that these things happened, but re [...]

    13. 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 camps, miscommunications, etc There was nothing that really set this novel apart from other Holocaust stories in my opinion Overall, a decent story but it s not a Holocaust story I would recommend over others I would recommend The Lost Wife instead.

    14. 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 trying to portray A little polishing and better editing could make this a great book instead of just a good book.

    15. I wanted to like this book, I really did I ve read a lot of WWII historical fiction novels, I don t think I ve ever rated one a one star before Until now that is This book had such great potential, however, the characters had no depth, no feeling They read like robotic characters with no emotion The relationships in the book, whether it be a parent, a love interest, a fianc , a spouse, an abusive parent, had no emotion It was like the author was trying to purposely put no emotion in his book.The [...]

    16. I have to say that I was moved to tears and anguish at the atrocities of the Nazi Camps that are described in this story The authors does not hold back on the brutality and utter evil of the Nazi SS This is probably the most profound, emotional historical fiction book on World War II that I have read in a long time At first I had to take the story in small dosages Not because it wasn t written well Quite the contrary The story was told so well that as I said above, I was moved to tears Each char [...]

    18. GAB This was an excellent book about the inhabitants of the Isle of Jersey from 1924 until the end of WWII, and how WWII divided loyalties and relationships We follow Christopher and Rebecca from their first meeting at six years old until they meet again in New York in September 1954 The war years are well researched and the protagonists are portrayed sympathetically The details are intricate and the story flows well This was a hard book to put down, and is one I will keep, to read again If you [...]

    19. ChillingOne of those books which should be required reading for all Americans over sixteen We all need to be reminded of the atrocities levied on innocent people simply because of their race If our younger generation isn t educated about these true events it can happen again It s a terrible, chilling, achingly difficult book to read but please read it and recommend it to your friends It s distressing to realize there are people out there who are denying the killing of millions ever happened don [...]

    20. Disappointing For such a promising subject, the writing was flat and didn t evoke much emotion The love story lacked passion, and the war story lacked excitement The subject matter is very well know at least for me , and the author didn t really bring anything new or interesting to it It felt like a reporting of events with some dialog thrown in, and it was frankly a slog to finish I guess I prefer a literary writing style, where the author shows rather than tells.

    21. I came across this book by accident and it pulled me in from the beginning It s a gorgeous, heartbreaking story, difficult to read, but ultimately thoroughly satisfying It s a story that will stick with you, make you appreciate all you have in life and provide a better understanding of the horrors that took place during the holocaust.

    22. good read until the very endthis story took me in within minutes of starting The writer made me feel a part of the story, the pain of the characters suffering Though a bit vague about how Christopher rose to the ranks of the SS, once there I could empathize with the fear and hopelessness of the prisoners The end wasnt predictable though it was inevitable.

    23. Ohhh this book I don t even know how to review it because even though I loved it I just cringed saying that , it was probably the most emotionally scarring book I ve ever read to completion Yes, it s about the Holocaust and Auschwitz at that , and I ve read several other books with that setting subject matter, but this one was the hardest for me to push through However , the story was incredible, the characters felt very tangible and real, and there were some amazing moments with insights about [...]

    24. I received this book through NetGallery in exchange for my honest opinion, the thoughts reflected are my own.I didn t enjoy this book but I give it 4 stars That bears an explanation just like this book deserves a chance.I have long found myself digging into novels based upon WWII and the people who lived during that time Books that return voices to those who have lost them have always attracted me and there is no shortage of those in historical fiction.Most novels I ve read based upon this era c [...]

    25. I enjoyed reading most of the book though the subject matter was horrible I ve read many accounts of the Nazi German concentration camps but never from the perspective of an SS officer One who was kind One who, unlike the others, had fallen in love with a Jewish girl as a very young man, and who by circumstances of war were unwillingly separated from each other I felt the tension of one German man, who risked his own life daily while maintaining the charade of an obedient and uncompromised SS of [...]

    26. I m starting to be a lot critical of books and giving less 5 stars than I used to A four star rating from me means it s actually really good If I could give it 4.5 stars I would I really liked this book I am fascinated by WWII and Holocaust novels, but I prefer nonfiction Had this story been true I would have given it 5 stars no question The reason I didn t is the likelihood of this story being true is far fetched I m a sucker for romance so I appreciated that aspect of the story As a Holocaust [...]

    27. I read that this is the author s first novelwell done if that is the case I almost decided to not read it as it sounded pretty sad, which it was, but the characters were strong, and it was well written Christopher Rebecca meet when she is only 6 years old, she is crying in a field and he takes her home, he is not much older.e is Jewishd the Nazis have not yet invaded the island they call home Years pass and the day does come when Rebecca must leave the islandd Christopher has no way of knowing w [...]

    28. Fabulous read Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres Dempsey does a great job with his character development and truly allows you the opportunity to experience an amazing love story
