The Last Son was soooo good! I read it all in one sitting and it had me captivated.

A historical fiction set in the time around the Holocaust but is more focused on one family in particular. This book had so much to offer with love, family betrayal, a lost son, a mother’s love, a beloved father and a bittersweet ending that will leave your heart filled with compassion for a woman who has been through so much and deserves to have happiness.

If you enjoy historical fiction with lots of pain and a strong woman who manages to get through it all and keeps pushing through and never looses hope then this is the perfect book for you.
