The Nine is a triumph of the imagination… Strauss read memoirs and toured Europe in search of relatives to give the women literary immortality… It is an ingeniously constructed book… — Christina Hardyment ― The Times
The Nine is poignant, powerful, and shattering, distilling the horror of the Holocaust through the lens of nine unforgettable women. Banding together in the hellscape of Ravensbruck, the nine resistance fighters turned prisoners make a desperate bid for escape in the chaos of the war’s end, embarking across battle-ravaged Germany toward home. Gwen Strauss melds a poet’s pen and a decade of research into a tale of friendship, courage, and indomitable will. — Kate Quinn ― New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code and The Alice Network
