Fires in the Dark by Louise Doughty

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Historical Fiction

Rating: 8 out of 10

Plot: This book is a gypsy family in the years leading up to World War II up to the end of the war.  The family struggled to survive in a world that was increasingly dangerous for gypsies.

Opinion:  Overall I enjoyed this book.  I was deeply engrossed in the story and stayed up late to finish it.  There were some slow parts, but not enough to make me want to put the book down.  I think this is a good book for those who are interested in historical fiction, particularly World War II historical fiction.

Next book: Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of my Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman
