s Wife was inspired by a true story This story portrays love, spirit, and hope in the darkest of times I haven t read any historical fiction books in quite some time especially WWII books, as they all start to blend together after awhile , but The Prisoner s Wife was a great book to remind me why I really do love this genre.The storyline, which is based on a true story, centers around Izzy, a Czech

secretly marry when her mother is out of town Izzy refuses to leave Bill, so in order to be together, Izzy cuts her hair and dresses like a man They manage to evade capture for a couple of weeks, but eventually they are cornered by Nazi soldiers and transported to a POW camp In the POW camp, they face appalling living conditions and constant fear that Izzy will be exposured To try and keep Izzy safe, Bill confides in a small group of fellow prisoners, and the two are befriended by the group for the most part These men become their new family, and are even willing to jeopardize their lives to save Izzy from being discovered, as women who were caught disguised as men in POW camps were deemed spies and shot The couple faces extreme starvation and cruelty when they are moved to other camps and are forced to walk hundreds of miles in the dead of winter The book goes into great depth in describing the hardships POWs endured during WWII I was fully immersed in the storyline and read incessantly just to find out what happened to Bill and Izzy My only criticism of the book was the ending, as I would have loved an epilogue that went a number of years in the future to update the reader on what happened after the war ended.In the end though, it is an incredible story of love, risk, and of how the deepest bonds are tested in desperate times So worth the read for any historical fiction fans out there 4 stars
