Parade "Best Books of Summer" pick * Real Simple summer reading pick * SheReads "Best WWII Fiction of Summer 2021" pick The New York Times bestselling author of the "heart-stopping tale of survival and heroism" (People) The Book of Lost Names returns with an evocative coming-of-age World War II story about a young woman who uses her knowledge of the wilderness to help Jewish refugees escape the Nazis--until a secret from her past threatens everything. After being stolen from her wealthy German parents and raised in the unforgiving wilderness of eastern Europe, a young woman finds herself alone in 1941 after her kidnapper dies. Her solitary existence is interrupted, however, when she happens upon a group of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror. Stunned to learn what's happening in the outside world, she vows to teach the group all she can about surviving in the forest--and in turn, they teach her some surprising lessons about opening her heart after years of isolation. But when she is betrayed and escapes into a German-occupied village, her past and present come together in a shocking collision that could change everything. Inspired by incredible true stories of survival against staggering odds, and suffused with the journey-from-the-wilderness elements that made Where the Crawdads Sing a worldwide phenomenon, The Forest of Vanishing Stars is a heart-wrenching and suspenseful novel from the #1 internationally bestselling author whose writing has been hailed as "sweeping and magnificent" (Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author), "immersive and evocative" (Publishers Weekly), and "gripping" (Tampa Bay Times).… (plus d'informations)

Astounding story of depth which reveals the scope of good and evil in humanity. Full of twists and turns and memorable characters. I highly recommend this book! If you read Where the Crawdads Sing you will enjoy this story set in the forests of Poland during WWII. ( )

As an infant, Yona is kidnapped from her German parents by Jerusza. A mystic, Jerusza believes she has been guided to take Yona for a greater purposes. Jerusza teaches Yona how to survive in the forest, and imprints on her the need to be cautious and wary of civilization. After Jerusza's death, Yona encounters Jews fleeing from Nazi encampments. Yona teaches them to survive, and slowly finds herself trusting them.

I did not love the mystical elements throughout the book. I did enjoy Yona's story, and her interactions with people in the forest. This was an interesting holocaust novel with a unique perspective. Overall, 3 out of 5 stars. ( )

Okay.....a little repeticious. Main character was a bit unbelieveable, however I was impressed by the amount of research author had done ( )

Kristin Harmel is magic when she writes. She has this power of bringing her stories to life, making the reader feel as though they are involved in the story, and writes such beautiful tales of woe and love.

The Forest of Vanishing Stars is no exception. I felt everything Yona was feeling - from the isolation, to love, to betrayal. I cannot imagine all she endured. I appreciated the view into her life during this time, the small acts that allowed her to survive, and the constant faith.

I am a huge fan of 1940s historical fiction, but this one just didn't hold my interest. I didn't find the characters to be very endearing and didn't think there was very good closure on the main character's connection back to her childhood. I also got a bit bored as the traveling through the forest was a very common theme. The book was well written, I just didn't connect with the premise or the characters. ( )

Lives are circles spinning across the world, and when they're meant to intersect again, they do.
Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.
The Germans, they don't just wipe out our people. They wipe out our future.
It's the cracks in us that make us who we are.
The universe is always in balance...Summer and winter. Day and night. Sustenance and poison. Good and evil. To know the light, you must also know the darkness.
