Sadie’s sin was a historical fiction set in 1924. The story begins with Sadie living in Poland and in love with Alexander Kaminski. He is a university professor, and Sadie’s parents do not bless their unity. They instead force Sadie to marry a wealthy Argentine Jewish businessman named Ezra. Things could not worsen for Sadie as her not so glamorous life ends up in sex slaving, prostitution, and trafficking.
With the help of his friend Jan, Alex goes through hell and back to rescue Sadie from the horrific situation she is in. The hardship, triumphs, and scenes that both characters go through, are written and described so well that you, as the reader, simply cannot fathom how this could be happening.
Alongside the entire endeavor, the story also provides educated historical facts about the time and era for which it stands for. Indeed, none of it would be acceptable or allowed at this time and age. The contrast of it all provided a rich and intense story that made you bond with the characters and feel for them.
The pace of the story was steady, and the literature was well written. I appreciated the delicate nature of the story and understood how everything was laid out.
I recommend this story to anyone who likes historical fiction or Jewish history.Tweet
