Less as the rest I do understand Rosa s motives for survival lie in letting things rest and I m certain that is how many went n to cope post 1945 Overall I think this is an excellent book and I m glad

first that this happened for real I mean yes the story was just as if someone really experienced it but who would survive such as what Margot experienced and she still had faith in living I wish no person her fate f live but in the end she was a winner and not her keeperA story f someone s life being not just controlled Thank you to Flatiron Books for mailing me the advance copy f At The Wolf s

This is a story that in part I was familiar with from having read The Taster by VS Alexander last year Both books historical fiction are haunting chilling hard to image yet was imaginable from both author s vivid storytelling I learned fascinating information from THIS BOOK than The Taster yet both books are absorbing and well researched I ll soon explain the But first I to comment n Rosella Postorino s writingwhich is so intimate I can almost image that she s a painter Her descriptions are simplistic I mean that in the most complementary way so clearly visual I can see and feel everything she writes easily Rosella doesn t waste any time diving into the heart Black Leopard, Red Wolf of the story Perhaps being an editor gives her an advantage skillI ve no ideabut her writing

spentn building Rosa s moral struggle without being exposed to it I m not sure how to describe the content f this book It narrates the victimhood f members within the Third Reich but never truly exposes the darkness f it Maybe that s what s bothersome the fear and isolation f being caught in this profound moral dilemma are held at arm s length Postorino never fully delves into it And though her writing is so lyrical and vivid that you can uite literally picture the scene she s depicting you can t attune your emotions to match Rosa struggles with her disassociation from humanity She s too fearful to stand up for what is right and then condemns those who do the same It s a horrible paradox that choosing the right thing is basically choosing death And yet to continue living is in fact a
