Is anyone safe in Germany…especially the perfect female examples of the German race.
Gundi is one of the perfect, gorgeous German women chosen by the Reich to bear perfect children to create the master race. She does have a secret, though. Actually she has two secrets.
We meet Hilde who is a staunch follower of the Reich and one of the women who is willing to help fill Germany with perfect children.
And we meet Irma a former nurse and 44 years old. She will be the one encouraging the unwed mothers to stay healthy so they deliver these perfect children.
We meet these women during this dark time in history and at Lebensborn Society maternity home where women arrive already pregnant or will become pregnant by an approved German officer.
Ms. Coburn did amazing, thorough research on a topic I never knew about.
Historical fiction fans will enjoy CRADLES OF THE REICH.
There are many sensitive and heartbreaking topics addressed, and this idea of using German women in this way is something I couldn’t believe. 4/5
This book was given to me by the author via NetGalley for an honest review.
