My Review:

Michael Newman’s debut, Between These Walls, is a pretty good read. Readers are introduced to Daniel Singer, the adopted son of a World War II US Army Medical Corps Colonel, Samuel Singer. He receives a mysterious envelope from Germany, forty three years after the World War II. This package takes him on a journey around the world. He discovers more than he would have ever imagined. 

I really liked Between These Walls. I do have to admit that it jumped around a little bit that had me confused at first. There is a lot going on within the pages that was hard to understand. But about twenty five perfect of the way through it, I was able to catch on as to what was going on. There is some action, adventure, mystery and suspense. Daniel is left making some difficult decisions and he has to learn some important lessons. I admired his determination, bravery and courage. I liked getting to know him. The plot is no where near being predictable for me. I never knew what was going to happen next. It was exciting and entertaining to go from page to page to see where else the story would go. 

I am giving Between These Walls four and a half stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy historical fiction. I hope to see Michael Newman release another exciting novel in the near future. This one is most definitely worth a read and not to be missed. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion. 


  1. Thank you so much for sharing this exciting novel that dives into history.

  2. I liked the blurb and review. It sounds like a really interesting book. Thank you for sharing.
