SUMMARY è The Last Train to London The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Exiles conjures her best novel yet a pre World War II era story with the emotional resonance of Orphan Train and All the Light We Cannot See centering on the Kindertransports that carried thousands of children out of Nazi occupied Europe and one brave woman who helped them escape to safetyIn 1936 the Nazi are little than loud brutish bores to fifteen year old Stephan Neuman the son of a wealthy and influential Jewish family and budding playwright whose playground extends from Vienna’s This novel is based on the organization and implementation of the real Vienna Kindertransport that was led by Geertruida Wijsmuller This fictional story occurs prior to 1940 and primarily happens during 1938 We see a Dutch couple Truus Geertruida and her husband Joop Wijsmuller who are childless Truus is a brave and outspoken woman who risks her life countless time to seek refuge for helpless children We also see the rich Jewish family of Stephan who is stripped of everything once the Germans invade Austria There is the family of Zophie Stephan s best friend whose mother is a journalist reporting the true crimes of the Nazi s and eventually is on the run And there is also Adolf Eichmann the Nazi in charge of ridding Germany of its Jewish population through emigration Beginning in 1936 we see the pre invasion environment of Austria through the eyes of Stephan and Zophie The re culturing that Hitler aimed to achieve is a common topic of discussion in Stephan s household among his parents and family members who are strong admirers of art Soon after the Nazi s have began assaulting their culture German soldiers in their brown shirts with swastikas march in while Stephan and Zophie rehearsing a play How will Zophie an Aryan react when Stephan is treated with brutality by Nazi s Meanwhile after invasion Truus plans to transport a large number of children in danger to London It was hard for me to get invested in this story There were too many characters in motion for me to get attached and emotional With the chapters being so short it also took a long time to get to know them There was too much dialogue between Truus and Joop that was about everyday things which overcrowded their character It felt like too much information was included about the planning process and mundane arbitrary paperwork that went into Truus operations rather than focusing on her in action While the information was appreciated since lending to authenticity it took away from the story and the characters At times they felt so far away from me because I felt clustered and weighed down in intentions ideas and procedures I wanted to be in my feelings but it didn t happenThe story was at a dull but tolerant trot until 65% on a Kindle in which the plot starts to build and the story starts to take flightbut it s almost over at that pointDuring the pre invasion there are details in this novel about degenerate art and artists For information regarding this topic I would highly recommend the nonfiction book Hitler s Last Hostages Looted Art and the Soul of the Third Reich by Mary M LaneMany thanks to HarperCollins Edelweiss and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest reviewGeertruida WijsmullerAdolf Eichmann
