  1. I just finished Lilac Girls…. my only complaint is that it was so absorbing, fascinating, that I could NOt put it down!! Sure hope we will see more from this author!!

  2. Dear Martha,

    I just finished your book about an hour ago, and like many of the others who commented, I could not put it down. I have read hundreds of books about the Holocaust, yet yours was the first I have read that mentions the female doctor, Herta Oberheuser. Chilling to think of a man, much less a woman doing what she did. And Caroline Ferriday~well, I wish I had known her. Thank you for your many long years of research and for writing this unbelievable book and testimony. I will certainly tell all I know to read it.

    Thank you again,

    Jackie Covault

    1. Dear Jackie,
      Thank you for your lovely note. I too wish I’d met Caroline. Wouldn’t that have been wonderful?

  3. I just finished your totally absorbing and wonderful book! I never knew until I read your book that these events existed. I had never heard of Caroline Ferriday and I live in Woodbury!! Needless to say I am going to Bethlehem to visit her house. Thank you for writing this book and for showing people like me how much I didn’t know about WWII and the courageous women called “the rabbits.” I look forward to your next novel. Again, thank you!

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Marilyn! You will love Carolines house. They are actually having a big event June 10th up at the house, when the lilacs are in bloom. I’m speaking and they’ll show the trailer for the documentary based on Caroline and the rabbits. But the house is lovely any time spring or summer!

  4. I just love this book. It’s one of those books you don’t want to put down and cannot wait to be able to pick it back up. I actually took it to work with me and on my lunch hour I went outside to my car to read for an hour! I so love all the characters and love when you find that book that you become completely absorbed in!

    1. I love that you read it in your car at lunch hour. That’s the true sign of loving a book! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Chris. If you want to see more pictures of the real people behind the story I have a Pinterest page for Lilac Girls. Also pinning about my next book Gin Lane on a board there, too.
