Description

"Louise Brealey is an excellent reader who gives Cilka a thoughtful, sympathetic voice." (Jersey's Best)

This program includes a bonus conversation with the author. 

From the author of the multi-million copy bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz comes a new novel based on an incredible true story of love and resilience. 

Her beauty saved her - and condemned her.

Cilka is just 16-years-old when she is taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp in 1942, where the commandant immediately notices how beautiful she is. Forcibly separated from the other women prisoners, Cilka learns quickly that power, even unwillingly taken, equals survival. When the war is over and the camp is liberated, freedom is not granted to Cilka: She is charged as a collaborator for sleeping with the enemy and sent to a Siberian prison camp. But did she really have a choice? And where do the lines of morality lie for Cilka, who was send to Auschwitz when she was still a child? 

In Siberia, Cilka faces challenges both new and horribly familiar, including the unwanted attention of the guards. But when she meets a kind female doctor, Cilka is taken under her wing and begins to tend to the ill in the camp, struggling to care for them under brutal conditions. 

Confronting death and terror daily, Cilka discovers a strength she never knew she had. And when she begins to tentatively form bonds and relationships in this harsh, new reality, Cilka finds that despite everything that has happened to her, there is room in her heart for love. 

From child to woman, from woman to healer, Cilka's journey illuminates the resilience of the human spirit - and the will we have to survive.

How could one person possibly endure all that Cilka did?

From her happy childhood, to the horrors of the death camps, only to be punished further, while others got their freedom. Thank you for this story of survival. I really enjoyed the author speaking at the end, sharing why she came to write this book, and how she gathered her information.....

Great story, great performance

I absolutely loved it. Narrator was amazing, as usual, despite all complicated Russian names. An interview with the author was a great bonus. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves novels based on historical events and real people's lives.

Can be a stand alone book

I enjoyed this more than the first book. Tattooist of Auschwitz I really liked how strong the character was. I wish they talked more of her connection at the end. listen to the interview at the ending. Worth the extra few minutes

Horrifying and Satisfying, all in one

Between the Holocaust and the Gulag, the world had been massively unkind to some of its more vulnerable people. This story about the determination of one vulnerable girl to survive both spoke to my heart.

Phenomenal

Found this book by mistake and zipped through it so fast! This book has to be one of the best historical-fiction books I've read- and there have been a lot of them! Louise Brealey is a fabulous narrator and Heather Morris has done a beautiful job bringing the story of Cilka to life!

YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS BOOK

I have listened to many Audible books. This one took my breath away. I have not left a review before, but thought that anyone who read the Tatooist of Auschwitz must read this. Kudos to the author and to the narrator.

Spellbinding

I loved this book. The narrator's voice was mesmerizing and it was easy to fall right into the story, having just read The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Stay till the very end on this one. There's an interview with Heather and it was delightful to hear her story in her own voice. I just want to sit and listen to her for hours.

History

Interesting time in history. I knew very little of the Russian Gulag. If you like historical fiction this a good choice

Remarkable story!!!!

After reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz I couldn’t wait to “read” Cilka’s Journey. This story had big shoes to fill and succeeded. I only wished we learned even more about her life after her prison term. I hope Heather Morris continues to find fascinating stories about truly heroic people. I want more from this author!!!!

Ready to listen again

What an incredible journey this book will take you on. So incredibly well written with characters you will love and characters you will despise. The heart wrenching emotions I felt the whole time left me feeling drained, humbled, and oddly satisfied. The life this brave woman was forced to lead reminds how incredibly lucky we are to live freely today. Cilka’s unwavering determination and care for others makes me wish I could have known her in this life. A brave soul. A hero.

Narration inconsistent with the story

the book was well written and researched. the narrator's use of a Cockney type accent detracted from the story and was annoying.

Better read

The story was fascinating and the writing excellent but I definitely would have preferred to read it. I felt at times the narrators voice tedious and at other times over dramatic. I would definitely encourage reading it.
