Reviews

"Utterly gripping, The Goddess of Warsaw is a transformative and immersive story so powerful and captivating that I could not put it down. Rarely does a protagonist leap off the page and win over the heart like the unforgettable Bina Blonski. Truly one of the best books I've read." -- Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

"Lisa Barr's The Goddess of Warsaw is a riveting, heartbreaking story of survival and vengeance. This brilliantly executed excavation of one woman's quest to overcome crimes of the past is an absolute must-read. Glamorous, glorious, and gut-wrenching, I couldn't put it down." -- Danielle Trussoni, New York Times bestselling author of Angelology and The Puzzle Master

"The Goddess of Warsaw is a riveting novel that seamlessly weaves together the glamour of Hollywood with the haunting history of the Warsaw Ghetto. The tale of Lena Browning, a legendary screen goddess with a hidden past as Bina Blonski, a courageous Jewish spy during the Holocaust, is both heart-wrenching and inspiring. With its well-crafted plot, memorable characters, and a captivating blend of history and fiction, The Goddess of Warsaw is an enthralling page-turner that keeps readers on the edge of their seats until the very end." -- Jean Kwok, New York Times bestselling author of The Leftover Woman

"Lisa Barr's new historical fiction, The Goddess of Warsaw, gifts the reader with jaw-dropping moments worthy of a Tarantino film, a story that could not be more timely, and a heroine whose ferocity and valor knows no bounds. Bina Blonski is forced to lose and remake her identity time and time again, both to survive the Warsaw Ghetto and to carry out her secret mission years later as a Hollywood actress. Unrelentingly immersive and suspenseful to the very end, The Goddess of Warsaw spins a haunting tale of the cost of survival, sacrifice, and the long-denied secrets of the past." -- Natalie Jenner, author of the instant international bestseller The Jane Austen Society

"Lisa Barr has done it again! With her signature prose and compelling storytelling, she has crafted another gripping novel about survival and courage. Fast-paced, thrilling, shocking, and heartbreaking, The Goddess of Warsaw is a tribute to women everywhere and to those who refuse to be silenced when faced with atrocities." -- Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai, internationally bestselling author of The Mountains Sing and Dust Child

"Utterly spellbinding and wholly unputdownable, Lisa Barr's latest historical fiction, The Goddess of Warsaw, is a dazzling tour de force that grabbed me from the first line and wouldn't let me go until I raced through its final, pulse-pounding pages. Barr has crafted not only a heart-wrenching yet soul-affirming portrait of a woman who survived the Warsaw Ghetto and reimagined herself as a Hollywood star, she's crafted that elusive thing: an honest to god TRUE femme fatale who I cannot stop thinking about. Literary magic!"
-- May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives
