Maria lives in Poland during WWII. She's estranged from her family, living with her in-laws after her husband is sent to the front. Young and pregnant, the days cold, the nights lonely. Maria discovers a girl (Hannah) hiding in the barn. Hannah is hiding from the German's who are rounding up Jews.
Although short, this book packed a million words. It'll be one I long remember, thus my rating of 5-stars. Jenoff has a way to go to the heart of the story. The Other Girl transforms the reader to the characters involved, making one ask, "What would I do?" This is a wonderful, yet terrifying, story.
