Forbidden Angel by Megan Martin
When captured by the Nazi's, 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.
Angie J Review:
I received this book for an honest review.
WOW!! This is a powerful story. It is a dark but real life portrayal of life as a Jewish person in the time of the War. Sarah is doing everything to can to keep her family together as they enter the concentration camp. She sees the doctor Aurel and is drawn to him. But she cant be drawn to him because he is one of THEM!! He is a bad man...her "dark angel" as she calls him. The two have instant chemistry and you know they both want the other but in these times its a love that shouldn't be.
We see the real life darkness that the Jewish people endure while in the camps. We see Sarah being lusted over by evil workers and Aurel is trying to protect her while trying to keep himself safe as well.
Megan does a great job mixing this fictional story with real life concerns and issues of the time. The is a powerful and short read but one that I think anyone would enjoy and respect. The writing is on point and delivers a great story.
