Overall I have mixed feelings about this book. I always find alternate history books fascinating and terrifying all at the same time. I really liked seeing LGBT in this book and how it was handled while not the way we want it to be handled was true to what the Nazi's believed. LGBT isn't something we've seen very often in Historical Fiction books and seeing it talked about is good and I hope it continues. As for the rest of the book, it was terrifying to think of something like this having happened to Europe. So many more lives would have been destroyed and the aftermath of it is one that I don't want to think of. I do want to say Mayhew made it seem very real and the way she had it all explained while a little confusing worked.
