Rose Under Fire

By Elizabeth Wein
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Code Name Verity, delivers another stunning World War II thriller where a young female pilot will have to confront the realities of hope and bravery if she wants to survive capture. 

While ferrying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp. There, she meets an unforgettable group of women, including a once glamorous French novelist; a resilient young Polish girl who has been used as a human guinea pig by Nazi doctors; and a female fighter pilot for the Soviet air force.

Trapped in this bleak place under horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery, and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to enable Rose to endure the fate that is in store for her?

The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.

Praise for Rose Under Fire

* “Wein masterfully sets up a stark contrast between the innocent American teen’s view of an untarnished world and the realities of the Holocaust. [A]lthough the story’s action follows [Code Name Verity]’s, it has its own, equally incandescent integrity. Rich in detail, from the small kindnesses of fellow prisoners to harrowing scenes of escape and the Nazi Doctors’ Trial in Nuremburg, at the core of this novel is the resilience of human nature and the power of friendship and hope.” —Kirkus, starred review
 
* “Wein excels at weaving research seamlessly into narrative and has crafted another indelible story about friendship borne out of unimaginable adversity.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“make sure you have tissues handy! this book is one of those that nearly destroyed me emotionally. So tragic and beautiful I can't recommend it enough”
“Another masterful historical fiction that invites you into the middle of some of the most horrifying moments in human history and holds your hand as it guides you through. These books have a treasured spot on my shelves and in my heart. I cannot begin to explain how much this story broke my heart and then mended it again with the strength of its characters. Just like with Code Name Verity, Rose Under Fire will always live rent-free in my head, reminding me that even in the darkest moments of history, love, friendship, and compassion can still be found.”
“Rose Justice, an American transfer pilot during WWII, has to make an emergency landing in Germany. Her life would never be the same as she is sent to Ravensburk, a concentration camp for women. In a living hell, she clings to hope and her new found "family". Beautiful Lisette, tall and courageous Irina and little, crippled Roza. Can their ingenuity and hope keep them alive? Brutal, but great story of the atrocities of Ravensbruck.”
