Pam Jenoff is an excellent writer, especially of WWII Holocaust stories. I liked the first person views of both Sadie and Ella and then at the end, Lucy. I found it interesting that she gave Ella the shortened version of Cinderella who also had a wicked stepmother and wondered if it was intentional. I think I was surprised that it turned out to be Sadie that lived when she had been so hurt. ( )

A compelling and emotionally rich heart-wrenching tale of remarkable acts of bravery, survival, and long-held secrets and reconciliation.

A well-researched storyline that is made even more poignant as it is inspired by true events.

It is 1943 Poland, and as the Nazi have become aggressive in rounding the Jewish population, Sadie and her family take to the sewers to avoid this horrific act. One day Catholic Ella looks down at a sewer gate and sees Sadie peering up. Both girls are 19 and tentatively start to form a friendship which could have serious consequences for both, so trust is wary and will get tested.

While I found the storyline riveting, there were times when the timeline of events seemed to compress the sequence of events. I was glad that despite the harrowing circumstances that Sadie and Ella found small times of joy and hope as young women would have in more peaceful time.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing an eARC of this book in exchange for a honest review. ( )

I enjoy historical fiction which unfold from different perspectives.
This novel is told mainly in two alternating voices, Sadie, a Polish Jewish teenager forced
to live in the Kraków ghetto, and Ella, a Polish Catholic teenager who lives in an affluent part of the city. How they meet and become friends is heartbreaking, as is this entire story.

I sort of guessed the resolution to this story early, maybe even as early as the prologue. However, the mysterious prologue set the tone of my reading: I sped through, hoping to validate my guess.

The story, while filled with tragedy, was at the heart a story of the bonds of friendship and family. ( )

With every story I have read about the horrors of the Holocaust, I learn more about the resilience, tenacity, and greatness of the human spirit. How human beings, facing the worst of circumstances, can rise up to fall in love, form friendships, mourn death, and stay alive, somehow.

Those are certainly the lessons I learned from Pam Jenoff's book, The Woman With The Blue Star.

Set in Poland, this story is a celebration of two unlikely friends: Sadie, a young Jewish woman living in the sewer to escape the Nazis, and Ella, a young Polish woman who tries to find meaning and purpose in the throes of war. I could not imagine being in either woman's shoes, and I admired their bravery, friendship, and loyalty to each other.

In case you're like me and wondered if Jewish people did live in sewers to escape the Germans, the answer is yes. even the darkest of places can become a sanctuary of hope.

The Woman With The Blue Star is my first Pam Jenoff book but certainly not my last. She's a masterful storyteller, expertly leading us through this tragedy, unafraid to show us how people lived and died. I won't soon forget Ella or Sadie. Even though they are fictional characters, I have no doubt they represent many young women from this era: strong, determined, brave. ( )

The history behind The Woman with the Blue Star by Pam Jenoff goes as follows. A sewage work in the town of Lvov used his knowledge to protect a group of Jews from the Nazis. Think about that. People went down to and lived in the sewers with all the filth that entails to escape and to survive! What is so important about stories such as this one is that they remind us of man's atrocities towards man. What is also important is the fact that these two young women transcend their differences to find friendship, and that along with the atrocities, such periods in history also brought out heroes who brought help and hope. Perhaps, one day we will learn.
