Three German women's lives are abruptly changed when their husbands are executed for their part in an attempt to assassinate Hitler. They band together in a crumbling estate to raise their children and keep each other standing. This book is narrated by each of the women, giving us a clear understanding of their sense of loss, inner strength and the love they have for each other. This story examines the human side of war, where the lines are blurred between hero and victim.

I liked the book but at times, the story seemed to lose its luster, then return to the good pace. Jumping back in forth in time made it difficult at times to read. The historical context was good but I think much more could have been told in the story. The women's stories, the suffering, and rebuilding of lives was sad. Like with all wars, it seems like the women and children suffer based on the result of man. So sad.
