Six-year-old Gretl Schmidt is on a train bound for Aushwitz. Jakób Kowalski is planting a bomb on the tracks. As World War II draws to a close, Jakób fights with the Polish resistance against the crushing forces of Germany and Russia. They intend to destroy a German troop transport, but Gretl’s unscheduled train reaches the bomb first. Gretl is the only survivor. Though spared from the concentration camp, the orphaned German Jew finds herself lost in a country hostile to her people. When Jakób discovers her, guilt and fatherly compassion prompt him to take her in. For three years, the young man and little girl form a bond over the secrets they must hide from his Catholic family. But she can’t stay with him forever. Jakób sends Gretl to South Africa, where German war orphans are promised bright futures with adoptive Protestant families—so long as Gretl’s Jewish roots, Catholic education, and connections to communist Poland are never discovered. Separated by continents, politics, religion, language, and years, Jakób and Gretl will likely never see each other again. But the events they have both survived and their belief that the human spirit can triumph over the ravages of war have formed a bond of love that no circumstances can overcome.

Summary of The The Girl On The Train: by Paula Hawkins | Includes Analysis A Smarter You In 15 Minutes... What is your time worth? In what has been a massive success for first time thriller writer Paula Hawkins, The Girl on a Train is a novel packed full of suspense. Highly revered by Stephen King himself, the psychological thriller went straight in at number one on the New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2015, not being knocked off for thirteen weeks. Further praise for this book is given by Dreamworks acquiring the film rights to it, and the film adaptation will be ready for release in October this year. A first person narrative details the chilling story from the viewpoint of Rachel, Anna and Megan. Rachel finds her life wrought in jealousy, despair and alcohol abuse following the breakdown of her marriage to Tom. After being tormented by learning Tom not only had a mistress, Anna, but has now remarried and had a child with her too, Rachel plunges into alcoholism and loses her job. The pain of not being able to conceive a child with her husband herself drives Rachel to extreme lengths, taking her old route to work on the train so as not to rouse suspicion of losing her job, and also fantasize whilst passing her former married home. The story is wrought with jealousy, despair and follows many chilling twists and turns as each character's story begins to intertwine and Rachel, Anna and Megan become linked to each other, in macabre circumstances. It becomes clear that Rachel's drinking blackouts have clashed with her obsession with Megan, a woman Rachel has taken to watching along with her husband and imagining their perfect life together. When Megan is reported missing on the news, a bloodied Rachel feels she may be involved and the story becomes embroiled in police investigation and darker twists and turns. In turmoil, Rachel begins trying to find out more about Megan's disappearance and in doing so, gives herself a new focus instead of drinking. She becomes close with Megan's husband, Scott in order to try and learn more and in doing so, lies to him to get closer to him. In a horrific discovery, Megan's body is found and also was evidently pregnant. The fog of Rachel's alcohol abuse begins to clear and she recalls seeing Megan entering Tom's car, thus revealing an affair between them to his new wife Anna. Upon being confronted by Anna, Tom confesses the murder to her by the motive of her threatening to speak out about her pregnancy. In a fast paced turn of events, Tom begins attacking Rachel to silence her, but Rachel stands up for herself. She finds her strength and kills Tom with a corkscrew, with Anna helping and creating alibis to create a story of self defence. Winning numerous awards, The Girl on The Train has received outstanding recognition since its release last year. Taking the number one spot for the UK Hardback Chart for 20 weeks upon its release, this is a real achievement for British author Paula Hawkins.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the tradition of The Girl on the Train, The Silent Wife, and Gone Girl comes an enthralling psychological thriller that spins one woman’s seemingly good fortune, and another woman’s mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception. SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life. The request seems odd, even intrusive—and for the two women who answer, the consequences are devastating. EMMA Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupant—and it does. JANE After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street she is instantly drawn to the space—and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home’s previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror, as the girl before. Praise for The Girl Before “Dazzling, startling, and above all cunning—a pitch-perfect novel of psychological suspense.”—Lee Child “The Girl Before generates a fast pace. . . . [J. P.] Delaney intersperses ethics questions on stand-alone pages throughout the book. . . . The single most ingenious touch is that we’re not provided either woman’s answers.”—The New York Times “J. P. Delaney builds the suspense.”—Vanity Fair “Immediate guarantee: You will not be able to put this book down. . . . Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will realize that there’s not only more where that came from, but it’s also more thrilling.”—American Booksellers Association “This is going to be the buzziest book of 2017. We may only be a few weeks into 2017, but we’re calling it early: This year, The Girl Before will be that book. The upcoming novel by author J. P. Delaney has all of the makings of a sexy murder mystery that is sure to hit the bestseller chart, and it already has the movie deal to prove it.”—InStyle “Delaney has created a genuinely eerie, fascinating setting in One Folgate Street. . . . The novel’s structure, volleying back and forth as first Emma and then Jane begin to question their improbable luck, is beautifully handled. The pages fly.”—USA Today “The house has a dark past and a landlord that’s anything but welcoming.”—New York Post, one of the must-read books of the week “The Girl Before is deservedly anointed the ‘top girl’ of this season’s suspense novels.”—The Washington Post “The Girl Before is a cat-and-mouse game that toys with our expectations and twists our sympathies. At times almost unbearably suspenseful, it keeps us guessing from the first page to the very last. Don’t miss it.”—Joseph Finder
