I can’t tell you how excited I am about Ronald Balson’s new book, The Girl From Berlin. Do you remember when I told you all about his book, Once We Were Brothers? It’s no secret how much I loved it. You can only imagine how excited I was when the publisher reached out and asked if I’d be interested in taking a look at Balson’s newest release (stay tuned, I have a copy up for grabs). I checked my mailbox every day hoping it would arrive. I couldn’t wait to read about Liam and Catherine’s latest adventure. Let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. In another page turning read, Balson tells how one of Liam’s old friends enlists them to help his aunt, Gabi, who faces being evicted from her family home and vineyard in the hills of Tuscany. A powerful corporation claims to own the deeds and insists on claiming stake to the property while Gabi has her own set of deeds and is convinced the farm belongs to her. The only clue into the mystery is a handwritten German manuscript unearthing secrets from a story that is long forgotten. In this dual narrative, Liam and Catherine have to solve the mystery of how Gabi’s Tuscan vineyard is connected to a Jewish violin prodigy, Ada, in 1930’s Berlin during WWII. As Catherine and Liam dig through the layers of lies, corruption, and human evil, an unfinished story of heart, hope, survival, and ultimately redemption unfolds. It is a story that is sure to capture the hearts of Balson’s fans.
I found myself reading as quickly as I could, sneaking in pages while waiting for my kids to get out of school and the waiting room in between appointments. I couldn’t get through the story fast enough and even though I had a copy of the book, I ended up getting it from Audible so I could listen to it (use this affiliate link to learn more about Audible and grab your first two books for free).This way I could hear the story while I was driving, doing chores, or working. It’s that good – I couldn’t help myself. I needed to know how the story ended. It was so worth it! I loved it – every bit as much as Once We Were Brothers. I’ve also discovered there are two stories I missed, Saving Sophie and The Trust that I’ve added to my reading list. I’m sure they will be excellent too – I’ll let you know. In the meantime, how would you like a chance at winning a copy of The Girl From Berlin for yourself?
