To understand the complexity of Nazi Germany I’d go back to William Shirer or Caroline Moorehead. Sadly, I found Gossage’s book far too jejune, especially for those whose parents or grandparents were touched by the war.

Synopsis

In April 1941, a passenger ship sailing from New York to Cape Town was attacked and sunk by a German raider. The passengers were pulled from the water and transported to Nazi-occupied France, where the majority were released. Among those left behind were seven Canadian women. This is the tale of the year they spent together in Germany.
