The Day the Flowers Died by Ami Blackwelder

I was happy to see this as a free Kindle read recently.  From the description, I could tell that it was a romance set in Nazi Germany.  The young German girl falls in love with the dashing Jewish man.  They face hardships and struggles because of the war-stricken era they live in.  But, love conquers all.

I was to be disappointed.  The style of the writing seemed very stilted, very emotionless.  What could have really been poignant felt "stiff" to me.  And, I was so totally done in by the ending of the story.  I know that there weren't many happy endings in that time period, but I would have appreciated something different from a fictional novel.  Really.

I just can't recommend this one.  I'd give it a shaky three stars.  I was interested enough to at least finish the story.  And, I think I would rate it a PG-13 for the intimation of intimacy without any description.
