About the Book:
When captured by the Nazis, Sarah finds herself in a concentration camp that not only brings her closer to death…but closer to love.
Sarah Brenner, a young Jewish woman, is terrified when she finds herself in the heat of a railcar bound for a work camp in Nazi Germany. For years she, along with her mother and sister, had hidden from the SS, but no one could hide forever. Her hatred for those who have enslaved them is ever-growing, especially when they arrive and she encounters the shockingly handsome Nazi doctor who can’t seem to keep his eyes—or hands—off her.
Aurel Rothstein is not your everyday concentration camp physician. The endless prisoners and lack of care he’s allowed to give have made him numb to the work he so coveted. It isn’t until he comes face to face with a beautiful prisoner that his heart becomes involved with his job—a forbidden and fatal move to any Nazi.
When a vile soldier takes direct interest in Sarah, she will be forced to make a choice that will change her life forever: ignore the pull toward the handsome doctor or give in to the forbidden passion he awakens with only a look. Either way they both risk everything…
My Rating: 4 Stars
In Forbidden Angel, Megan D. Martin tackles an incredibly horrific and heart-wrenching subject: the Jewish Holocaust. However, this story reminds us that even in times of great tragedy and turmoil great love can still exist against all odds.
I will admit that this was at times a difficult book to read:because it portrays real situations. I will not rehash the horrors, but getting through some parts was quite harrowing and extremely emotional.
What kept me reading was the characters: people that were living in inhuman conditions, struggling to maintain some semblance of strength and to simply survive each horrible day. The author brings Sarah and Aurel together, obviously the unlikeliest of couples. She manages to create heat, connection, and chemistry in the midst of such terror and the danger their relationship creates for them. They are complex characters, each brave and but weak in their own way, struggling to come to terms with their feelings about each other and their own hopeless situations. The relationship brings light, warmth, and bit of hope to a story filled with unspeakable horrors. In a dramatic and beautiful climax, it becomes obvious that the perceived rights and wrongs of their relationship are not really all that important, when life and death are the stakes.
“He crossed the space that separated them and wrapped his arms around her as gently as he could. He had no excuse for his actions. There was nothing he could say to make it better. The cold, hard truth was that they were both here, and the only reason for this was because of the circumstances they were in. He couldn’t bring himself to regret meeting her. Something seemed so right about her in his arms. They fit together, almost like it was meant to be.”
