Blending Fact And Fiction
The German Nurse by M.J. Hollows is a heart wrenching historical novel that will compel you to keep reading long into the night.
The novel concerns the Second World War years when Guernsey was occupied by the Nazis. The reader sees the hardships the islanders faced. We witness the bravery and the quiet defiance. We view the small acts of rebellion.
Not every German was a Nazi but every German was caught up in Hitler’s war. Everyone was faced with the choice – to act with compassion or cruelty.
The characters are all well drawn and realistic. We ‘feel’ for the lead character as we follow him throughout. His heart is good but he was faced with some impossible choices in the effort to keep safe those he loved.
M.J. Hollows has created a marvellous tale as he has woven actual events into his fictional tale. The German Nurse was a heart wrenching read that I can highly recommend.
