Descripción

Motherland is inspired by stories from the author’s father and his German childhood, and letters between her grandparents that were hidden in an attic wall for fifty years. It is the author’s attempt to reckon with the paradox of her father—a product of her grandparents’ fiercely protective love and their status as Mitläufer, Germans who “went along” with Nazism, first reaping its benefits and later its consequences.
This page-turning novel focuses on the Kappus family: Frank is a reconstructive surgeon who lost his beloved wife in childbirth and two months later married a young woman who must look after the baby and his two grieving sons when he is drafted into medical military service. Alone in the house, Liesl must attempt to keep the children fed with dwindling food supplies, safe from the constant Allied air attacks, and protected against the swell of desperate refugees flooding their town. When one child begins to mentally unravel, Liesl must discover the source of the boy’s infirmity or lose him forever to Hadamar, the infamous hospital for “unfit” children. The novel bears witness to the shame and courage of Third Reich families during the devastating last days of the war, as each family member’s fateful choices lead them deeper into questions of complicity and innocence, to the novel’s heartbreaking and unforgettable conclusion.

Incredible read

Motherland is already one of my favorite books of the year. It is page-turning, heartbreaking, effervescent. I know I will be thinking about this book for a long, long time. And then I will read it again.

Wonderful book

Could not put this book down. Read it straight through in 2 days-only stopping to sleep and feed my family. Never have read a story about WW2 from this perspective. I didn't want the story to end. Loved this book!

Motherland

Good book. A view from the "other side" shows the terrible amount of suffering the German people lived through. War is hell for all, solders and civilians. Might we all learn from this.
