ludwika book concept

Over one month on since my free promotion of Ludwika and the book is still in the biographical charts and the reviews are still coming in. I woke up to a staggering 10 new reviews on Amazon. Thanks to the reviewers for taking the time to let others know how they felt about the book.

– Apologies for the lack of proper paragraphs. I’ve tried in vain to fix it and eventually decided to publish the good news all the same.

Ludwika was an engaging heroine. It added extra interest that the story was based on real life. It also opened a window on the Second World War from the Polish point of view which I found fascinating. I learned a lot from this book, as well as enjoying the read. I shall be reading more by Christoph Fischer in the future.

This story, based on a real person during the Second World War, is an eye-opener.How would we act under similar circumstances? Ludwika was a survivor and did what she had to do to survive. It isn’t always pretty, but it is touching.

I loved this book. Fischer did a masterful job of taking the reader through this young woman’s struggles, hardships, and very difficult decisions during the second world war. I would love to read more of this genre.
A good historical novel

Slow starting but by the second chapter it was a combination of war, love and a great piece of history.
This book is about the harrowing and disturbing incidences that happened to a Polish family and one girl in particular when the Germans and Russians invaded Poland. It is not an autobiographic book, but it is based on a real person and real events in WWII. To survive, Ludwika and her family have to learn German, a particular German officer seemingly takes a liking to Ludwika, promising to make her his wife and take her to Germany, but there is no room to take her small daughter. Believing that she can make it better for her family and her daughter, Ludwika leaves behind all she has ever known to embark on a life promised but will it really happen? More awaits, her life in Germany will not be sunshine and flowers. However, Ludwika is a strong individual, but her like as she knew it, will never be the same. I enjoyed the book.
Was very interesting. She was not Jewish, but was from Poland.


Blurb: It’s World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss . . . ultimately, it’s one woman’s story of survival.
