The Daughter’s Tale by Armando Lucas Correa is out today!

Brenda’s review

A mother’s heartbreak, impossible choices, desperate circumstances, and a daughter’s secrets to survival.

The Daughter’s Tale is an unforgettable heartbreaking family saga that follows The German Girl.  It explores the heart-wrenching decisions of one mother’s choices made out of love and for survival.  The story pulled at my momma heartstrings and I could feel our main character’s Amanda’s desperation to save her daughters and her strength as she made the impossible, haunting decisions she had to.

Armando Lucas Correa does a good job here evoking the horrors here in the story but keeps the details lighter compared to some historical fiction I have read.  It did lack some emotional pull and depth to some of the characters needed to connect on an emotional level. However, it did leave me a sobbing emotional mess in the best way in the end, thinking about all the mothers out there that had or have to make impossible decisions to save their children.  For that, I highly recommend and I recommend to readers who like to keep the horror lighter but still get a feel for the events.

I haven’t read The German Girl yet, however, I now need to read it and I look forward to the next book from Armando Lucas Correa

Thank you to Simon and Schuster Canada for my complimentary copy.
