The Plum Tree - Ellen Marie Wiseman - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Plum Tree:

A German woman survives the Nazis after losing everything she loves.

My favorite Ellen Marie Wiseman quote from the book:

"War makes perpetrators of some, criminals of others, and victims of everyone."

Questions to ponder while reading The Plum Tree:

What would you do for someone you love?

How much would you risk under a regime?

My thoughts about The Plum Tree:

Engrossing tale.

Good flow.

Engaging plot.
