Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Book Synopsis:

Trying to outrun her family’s history with the Holocaust, Rachael finds herself having to live in Berlin for at least a year. Once there, she is tortured by visions and nightmares as she allows herself to try to connect the dots between her family’s past and her own present.

Bobby was hesitant to settle for a mail-order bride from Russia and Sofiya felt like a welcome compromise. But, young, beautiful and English-speaking, she comes with her own baggage. Can the two overcome their mutual mistrust and damaging insecurities before they destroy each other trying to make their marriage work?


I was truly surprised by this set. It wasn't the type fiction I would normally read, but I really enjoyed the books. One Year in Berlin was extremely interesting and I found myself wondering how this poor girl that had been brought up to fear Germany would fair in Berlin. Foreign Bride sucked me in from the first sentence. It was extremely fast-paced and a really enjoyable read. Marina Raydun is an excellent author and I can't wait to read more from her.
