"City of Women" by David Gillham (Penguin, $25.99) It is 1943 — the height of the Second World War—and Berlin has essentially become a city of women. Sigrid Schroder tries to maintain the life of a model German soldier’s wife while secretly dreaming of her former lover, a Jew now lost in the chaos of war. When a high-ranking SS officer moves down the hall from Sigrid, her life becomes embroiled in a world she knew nothing about, where she is forced to choose between right and wrong. In this page-turning novel, David Gillham explores what happens to ordinary people thrust into extraordinary times.
