Novelist David R. Gillham visits One More Page to share the paperback release of his extraordinary book, "City of Women."
It is 1943—the height of the Second World War—and Berlin has essentially become a city of women. Sigrid Schröder is, for all intents and purposes, the model German soldier’s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime. But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman who dreams of her former lover -- a Jew -- now lost in the chaos of the war.
In this page-turning novel, Gillham explores what happens to ordinary people thrust into extraordinary times, and how the choices they make can be the difference between life and death.
