Riassunto: Whom do you trust, whom do you love, and who can be saved? At the height of World War II, Berlin has become a city of women. Sigrid Schröder, the model German soldier's wife, goes to work every day, does her best with her rations, cares for her meddling mother-in-law, and ignores the horrors of the regime. But behind this façade Sigrid dreams of her lover, lost in the chaos of war. Her lover is a Jew. And Sigrid is not the only one with secrets.
Recensione: Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2012: While the world hardly lacks for novels about WWII, David R. Gillham?s City of Women is extraordinary for what it does not do. It does not detail the events or imagined conversations of Hitler?s Reich, and it has not a single scene of life in the death camps. Instead, it chronicles-?in detail so specific that it?s mesmerizing, but not so obviously researched as to be annoying-?life for ?ordinary? Berliners at a time that was anything but. Through Heroine Sigrid Schroder, a German wife drawn into an affair with a Jew, Gillham shows us a world in which not all Germans are bad, not all Jews are victims, and loyalty is a fiction, the grimmest of fairy tales. -? Sara Nelson
