Save Me Twice by E A Dustin
Karl's story is amazing!
Dustin pens her father, Karl's story during WWII in the remarkable title in Save Me Twice. This is the second book of this author's that I've read. I read the acknowledgements and preface before the story, and it just grabbed this read. I could almost hear Karl tell his story. When the story starts, it immediately startles the reader, as it did Karl. "[Karl] jumped out from under his warm down comforter, swept aside a strand of red curls off his forehead, and hurriedly tip-toed to his bedroom door to press his ear against it. “SS! Open the door!” ordered a harsh, deep voice, accompanied by even more impatient banging. “SS!” Karl knew the SS was the German Schutzstaffel, soldiers known for their organized oppression under Hitler’s iron fist..." I read this book from start to end and couldn't put it down. It was not just a story, it was the life Karl lived during this most dramatic and traumatic time in history. Dustin does a wonderful job telling Karl's story second hand, and I truly enjoyed reading it, every emotion and fear, and startling truths. I look forward to reading more by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
