A Child of the Cold War: Code Name: Kitten by Cathy O’Bryan (Book Review #844)


A child of the cold war is a historical fiction based on a real family dealing with the cold war intruding in their seemingly normal life. Emmy, a teenager, is unaware that she has high-level CIA agents’ parents, wanted by the Nazi sympathizers.

The story is set in the 1960s, and the clash between Emmy’s age dealing with the era was fascinating to read. She is a normal girl with normal behavior; therefore, one would not assume that she would naturally wake up from a bomb blast that destroys her home and step into the challenges she faces.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I found the love between the family-pleasant and sweet to the eye. Emmy’s parents don’t want any harm come to Emmy and her sister, but instead of getting them ready for the day that it does, they keep them away from all that. And so, the adventure begins with Emmy’s world being infiltrated, and she is kidnapped.

The literature is written well and is descriptive. What mattered most was the author kept the historical facts straight and had done her research.

I recommend the book to anyone who likes to read historical cold war-related stories.
