"A door slammed and the unmistakable sound of boots came crashing up the hall. Liese held her little daughter's hand so tightly, the tiny fingers had turned purple. The SS officer's hand was at Liese's throat before she saw him move. 'I can kill you easily, then I can kill your daughter.' He relaxed his grip a little. 'Or perhaps I could kill her first?' England, forty years later. When Karen Cartwright is unexpectedly called home to nurse her ailing father, she goes with a heavy heart. The house she grew up in feels haunted by the memory of her father's closely guarded secrets about her beautiful mother Elizabeth's tragic death years before. As she packs up the house, Karen discovers an old photograph and a stranger's tattered love letter to her mother postmarked from Germany after the war. During her life, Karen struggled to understand her shy, fearful mother, but now she is realising there was so much more to Elizabeth than she knew. For one thing, her name wasn't even Elizabeth, and her harrowing story begins long before Karen was born. It's 1941 in Berlin, and a young woman called Liese is being forced to wear a yellow star..."--Cover.… (mer)

This book tugged at my heartstrings! I could place myself in Karen's shoes as she made the difficult decision to put her father in a home and begin the tedious task of selling his home. This, of course, has her finding things about her father she was previously unaware of.

The dual POV kept the story moving and kept me wanting to see how things turned out for everyone.

Thank you Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read this and give my honest opinion. ( )

What Only We Know is a fictional book set in World War II era Germany. You are introduced to a well to do Jewish family who thinks nothing bad can happen to them because they are rich and well known, but how naive they are. I found myself screaming at the characters "Get out now!", but of course it would not have the good storyline if they had listened.
It jumps back and forth between the perspective of Liese, daughter of this prominent family, and her daughter Karen in the 1990's as she tries to figure out what drove her mother to commit suicide. Many family secrets are eventually exposed and you can understand why Liese is depressed. The war changed her as I'm sure it did many people. What I cannot understand is why she felt guilty for doing something any mother would have done in her situation.
Of course, it would not be a good story without a love connection and some happy situation coming out of all the sadness, and this book delivers. Overall, it was an interesting read, but the book seemed rather long and drawn out. Thank you NetGalley for another great read. ( )
