Review:

"An extremely moving and intensely personal history of the Auschwitz universe as experienced by these women. . . . A powerful and moving book."--Natasha Lehrer, Times Literary Supplement (UK)

"Haunting account of bravery, friendship, and endurance."--Marie Claire

"As Moorehead delves deeply into the women's fight for survival, her narrative seamlessly comes together in order to share a significant part of history whose time has come to be heard."--Meganne Fabrega, Christian Science Monitor

"[Moorehead] traces the lives and deaths of all her subjects with unswerving candor and compassion. . . . In Moorehead's telling, neither evil nor good is banal; and if the latter doesn't always triumph, it certainly inspires."--Elysa Gardner, USA Today

"A miraculous story about friendship and the will to overcome extraordinary cruelty, heartache and loss."--The Jewish Journal, "Best Books of 2011"

"The first complete account of these extraordinary women and, incredibly, over 60 years later we are still learning new and terrible truths about the Holocaust. . . . An important new perspective. . . . Careful research and sensitive retelling."--Buzzy Jackson, Boston Sunday Globe

"Compelling . . . Moorehead weaves into her suspenseful, detailed narrative myriad personal stories of friendship, courage, and heartbreak."--Kirkus Reviews

"By turns heartbreaking and inspiring."--Caroline Weber, New York Times Book Review

"[A] moving novelistic portrait. . . . An inspiring and fascinating read."--Meredith Maran, People (3? stars)

"As chronicled by Moorehead with unblinking accuracy, their agonies are appalling to contemplate, their stories of survival and friendship under duress enthralling to hear."--More magazine

Book Description:

A moving and extraordinary book about courage and survival, friendship and endurance - a portrait of ordinary women who faced the horror of war together.
