The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy was read by a couple of participants for the WWII reading challenge.  Here are excerpts from their reviews; click the links to read their complete thoughts.

Wisteria from Bookworm’s Dinner says:

The reading is slow at first, then suddenly as details unfold you will be flipping furiously to the next page. Set in two locations, the story eventually merges together and quickly like a force in motion builds to a breathtaking end.

Lezlie from Books ‘N Border Collies says:

Like so many books about WWII and the Holocaust, this one is difficult but necessary. What I found most memorable was that not all of the Nazi’s were stereotyped. There were those who questioned their orders, and those brave souls are the ones who lifted this particular WWII/Holocaust story to a higher plane.

**Attention participants:  Remember to email us a link to your reviews, and we’ll post them here so we can see what everyone is reading!**


  1. I’m not doing that particular challenge but I just finished this book and thought it was impeccable so I’m reading a few reviews. I’ll read these two that you mention, thanks!

  2. Hi Cassie! Thanks for stopping by. I’ve heard good things about this book and hope to read it at some point. I probably wouldn’t have learned of it if it hadn’t been for our challenge participants.
