Hitler´s Daughter is, in my opinion, an amazing book. The story is set in Australia and draws
you in right away with its sweet and passionate characters. The main characters are Anna and Mark. They are school aged children who pass their time each morning telling stories on the bus to school.You will fall in love with the sweet way they go about daily life yet discuss such powerful and emotional events of the past. The children were fascinating to me because I could relate to them. They spoke a little different using words like ´´Mum´´ for mother and they lived in
another country. The author did a wonderful job making me feel like I was exactly like them.
In the book, Anna tells her intriguing story about a little girl named Heidi. She was Hitlers daughter. You will feel the sadness in Anna´s voice as she describes the horrible life that poor Heidi had to live. Mark became overwhelmed with sorrow and intrigue as he tried to figure out if the story Anna was telling was truth or make believe. He struggled over the details of Heidi´s sad life and didn´t want to believe that a child would live the way she did. Heidi was abandoned by her father and made to feel worthless. She had a scared face and walked with a limp. Mark was disgusted with Hitler and wanted to know more and more about how he could be so evil. As the story continues you will be drawn further into the compassion that these children feel over her story. The author keeps you in suspense throughout the story, giving you details that are so real to life and yet is just a childs make believe story. Mark had nightmares about how Heidi was not allowed to attend school and she had no friends. She lived a lonely life. He appreciated his own life and family more and more as her story was told. I was so moved by the powerful and sincere emotions stirred up from this book. I had feelings of appreciation for my own family. The highlight in this story for me was the way Mark really cared for Heidi, never knowing for sure if she was real or fake.
Hitler´s Daughter is a great book that I would recommend highly to everyone.This book will transport you back to a time of great despair and troubled times. I promise you that
when you finish this book, you will have a different outlook on events of the past and a much greater appreciation for the present times. If you enjoy taking a trip back in time then read Hitler´s Daughter. You will not be disappointed.
