The Brushmaker’s Daughter

By Kathy Kacer
Level 6

The Brushmaker’s Daughter is beautifully written and inspired by a true story. Life was difficult for Lillian and her blind father as Jews living in Nazi Germany. When Lillian’s father heard about a factory that hired blind Jews and did everything they could to protect them, things began to look up! But was it too good to be true?

I was completely engrossed in this story, even though I’ve read many books about World War II. This book was particularly unique, presenting a perspective I had never encountered before. In the back of the book, there’s more about the true story on which this is based, and that was almost more fascinating than the story itself!
