This book, based on a true story, is truly amazing I couldn t put it down It is the story of a married couple captured by Nazi soldiers during WWII They enter a prisoner of war camp and with the help of a small group of fellow prisoners hide the fact that she is a woman As they move to a work camp, there is new fear that she will be discovered At that camp they are forced to break up pieces of granite for grave markers for Nazi soldiers Then they are forced to march for many days without food or water to the next camp arriving there almost dead Sometimes they are allowed one potato a day or a small hunk of bread This is an amazing story of perseverance, grit and the will to live while helping each other survive. This book was received as an ARC from Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.My jaw was wide open throughout the entire book plus if you want to get your heart racing with some historical fiction, this is the book to do it The story behind Izzy and Bill was so breathtakingly risky that out of all the historical fiction novels I have written focusing on couples and romance, this one really tugged at my heart strings They used their love as strength and that is what brilliantly got them through disguising Izzy as a man to plan their greatest escape Meeting a group of prisoners created people to protect Izzy from being exposed and killed This book made me feel the power of strength and the bond of family to get you through anything I know this book will do very well at our library and our book club will can t get enough of it.We will consider adding this title to our Historical Fiction collection at our library That is why we give this book 5 stars.
