This is the story of a young Polish woman wanting to train a doctor when Germany invade Poland. We follow her working to try and help other people either being held by the Germans or hiding from them. When she catches the eye of a German officer she escapes to England and falls in love with an English aristocrat working as a pilot in the air force, but the call to go back to Poland is strong.
Years later, a young woman called Sarah finds out her mother is named as executor of the will left by Richard, the pilot, and will inherit two houses if a certain Magdalena Drobnik cannot be found. As Sarah's mother is in hospital after a stroke, Sarah sets out to solve the mystery surrounding her mother's background and her connection to Magdalena. This book was a brilliant read. It was all I could do to put it down and I read it until the early hours of the morning.
Although set in a dual timescale, it did not keep skipping from one era to another, as some books do to an infuriating extent every chapter. It did, however, tie up extremely well. If you are a fan of WW2 stories with a love story included, this will be the book for you. It's excellent and you won't be disappointed.
I'm very discerning where books are concerned, but I can say in all honesty that this was probably the best book I've read for a very long time. It's extremely well-written, and the story is so moving and poignant as it unfolds, that I can't help but wonder if it is loosely based on the recollections of someone the author knows, or someone in her family.
If not, then her research is exacting and agsin, superbly done. I can't praise this book highly enough. One very minor negative - because this is set in two eras, with a lot of different people, perhaps some of the names could have been a little less similar, to avoid confusion. Initially, I had to check a few times to distinguish for example between Irena and Isabel. I know the only real similarity is the initial, but when you are bring introduced to so many characters, it can cause confusion, probably more so with Kindle than a hard copy, as it is not so easy to check back.
Gripping, poignant and honest, We Shall Remember is an incredibly powerful story about the choices we make under fire.

Her third book, The Shipbuilder's Daughter , was inspired by, as always, true events - this time by the Glasgow shipyards where her grandfather once worked. Irena is a young medical student living in Warsaw when The choices she made under fire changed everything.
