Cilka’s Journey: A Novel

We rated this book:


Following on the heels of her bestselling The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Heather Morris once again enters the world of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. We focus on Cilka Klein, who is a sex slave for the SS in Auschwitz. After the camp is liberated she is prosecuted by the Soviet Union as a collaborator and sent to a gulag in northern Siberia. While Cilka fears for her life she suffers because she just wants to know what freedom is like and will she ever be able to live a normal life. The book follows her path through pain, heartache, and redemption as Cilka learns to love herself again.

This is not the best book, the previous one is better. It often moves at such a fast pace that often entire seasons can just go by in a sentence. Those looking more for historical accuracy might want to look elsewhere, like many historical fiction novels there are liberties taken. The ending of the novel really feels like the ending of a typical romance book. For those that loved the first one, you will find this one decent enough.
