I wanted to share an insightful review Holocaust scholar Talcott Broadhead wrote for Amazon and Goodreads.

An Historical Fictional story of love and resilience
Talcott Broadhead
The Fires of Lilliput, Verified Purchase

April 21, 2022

"The author is an excellent story teller and his character development is both deep and creative.

"While reading of these events isn’t fun, I would say that I enjoyed this book quite a lot. There were nights that I didn’t want to put it down. The author writes about remarkable acts of love and courage that felt so uplifting to read about right now.

"It was not difficult for me to connect with the people of this story, even the ‘villains,’ -- an imperfect example, but one nonetheless of Arendt’s thesis of the banality of evil.

"If an author can achieve this in a work on the Holocaust, then I am excited by their capacity for drawing the reader into the realistic dynamics of the period.

"That said, without a more specific offering of moral guidance, a reader might over-empathize with the villains in this book who are based on the very real SS, Hitler.Youth, silent bystanders, complicit anti-semitic clergy, actively violent police and civilians, non=SS camp guards, etc.

"There are moments where I felt irritated by historical inaccuracies, but then I recalibrated and reminded myself that this is not a history book; it is a work of fiction :) 

"Let’s just say that there are events that express an optimistic hindsight.

"The author took on a lot with this work and given the scope I am so very impressed with the dynamism he conveyed and tracked throughout. Clearly a professional. I do recommend this book."

The Fires of Lilliput
is ON SALE FOR $0.99 at Amazon and $9.99 (paperback, normally $16.99) at Heart Beat Books.
