1943 Reclus dans son uartier general en Prusse orientale terrorise a l'idee ue l'on attente a sa vie Hitler a fait recruter des gouteuses Parmi elles Rosa uand les SS lui ordonnent de porter une cuilleree a sa bouche Rosa s'execute la peur au ventre chaue bouchee est peut etre la derniere Mais elle do. During WWII there were many people who wanted to put an end to Hitler s reign of terror and as the tide began to turn against him in 1943 those tasked with keeping him safe had to come up with every conceivable plan to ensure his continued leadership With this in mind every method by which his assassination could be carried out had to be covered This included ten women who were employed as Hitler s food tasters and this novel is loosely based on Margot W lk who died at the age of 96 shortly after revealing her part in serving Hitler as one of his food tastersThree times a day these women were forced to consume meals prepared for the Fuhrer to ensure that the food hadn t been poisoned too bad for these women if it had been each bite could have been their last One can only imagine the fear that these women endured On the one hand they were being fed delicious food when others in their community were starving but that sustenance could also have been their killerThe storyline concentrated on food taster 26 year old Rosa she s very much a loner both her parents are dead and her husband Gregor is fighting on the front line and she s now living with Gregor s parentsRosa is a deep thinking emotionally flawed character with whom I sadly failed to connect I couldn t resolve myself with some of the decisions she made and although I realise that these were extremely difficult times and choices were limited she came across as very cold and distant and on finishing the book I felt I knew little about her than I had at the beginningEven though I didn t engage with the protagonist I do think the novel was interesting and beautifully written almost uiet and subdued in its style the author said what she had to without great fanfareThank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins for my ARC I have given an honest unbiased review in exchange
