My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Malin and the Wolf Children, written by Skadi Winters is a story about a young German girl, Malin, who must survive alone in war-ravaged Germany and Poland in 1945. Malin’s odyssey begins with her escape to the woods after she is brutally raped by enemy soldiers. In her journey into warfare’s darkness, she must find the resilience to survive in dead winter against all odds that advancing troops might harm her again. Determined to find her family, Malin garners strength to overcome the obstacles she faces by embracing fond memories of her childhood and tales told by her Grandmother about ancient gods and goddesses of the forest. Along the way she meets other orphaned children scavenging for food and shelter like a pack of wolves. To survive, she must accept help from strangers who may be as evil as the vengeful soldiers stomping through the countryside. Ultimately, this is a thought-provoking story about Malin finding hope that life can renew from destruction and that kindness can overcome the cruelty of revenge. She is a witness to the horrors of war, but she chooses not to lose her soul as a result of it. I highly recommend this beautifully written book that reminds me of an ancient legend where heroes/heroines transform during their epic journey.
