Publisher's Synopsis

National Socialist Berlin, and as their world changes around them, five women - Ingrid, Liesel, Greta, Gisela, and Lore - battle to hold on to their identities and their lives as they know them. Ingrid tries to save her daughter from her husband's zealous beliefs. Liesel, a lesbian, marries a gay man for his, and her own, protection. Greta, spurned by Liesel, joins the Resistance then disappears. Gisela finds herself incarcerated in Ravensbruck, a women's concentration camp, and then working in the camp brothel at Mauthausen. And Lore craves a life beyond Berlin, beyond wifedom and motherhood - a desire which leads her down a dark path. Exploring themes of motherhood, identity, trauma, war, fascism, and survival, Fragments of a Woman offers a nuanced and heart-breaking exploration of what it meant to be a woman under National Socialist rule.
