      This book got me RIGHT HERE. All the feels. The love story was so sweet, the backstories for the main characters so devastatingly heartbreaking, the intertwinedness so touching, the resolution so hopeful. When I got done reading, I just wanted to wrap my arms around the story and hold it tight. Very, very well done. Now I just want to read it all again.

      Absolutely loved this book. The writing was beautiful, the story heartbreaking, yet hopeful, and the love story was so tender and sweet.

      Katherine King shines in her debut novel, a beautiful piece of historical fiction that transports you to post WWII America. I swooned as Gita falls for her new husband, loving their kiss in the orchard and then gripped the book in shock when someone unexpected shows up at the door. This book gave me chills as the pieces fell into place, the author artfully weaving in past and present to form a tale that will not leave you for days.

      An amazing story that goes between 1952 and the Holocaust. There are so many twists and turns in this book that you won't be able to put it down. For anyone that enjoyed The Nightingale, you will love The Other Side of the Stars!!

    5. Melody on said:

      The love story was secondary and a bit much for me. I enjoyed the historical aspect far more. The end hit me hard and had me crying like a baby a good way.

    6. Kara on said:

      The best books begin and end on the same day :), and this was one of the best. It was all so beautiful and heart-wrenching and glorious! I loved the characters, the romance, just the whole thing and couldn't bear to stop reading! Katherine King is fantastic and I look forward to more from her.

    7. Kimberly Krey on said:

      This is an incredible story filled with intrigue, suspense, and romance too. Perfect read for a rainy evening or a day at the beach. Can't wait for my paperback to come so I can read it again!

    8. Ruth Josse on said:

      Wow! What a beautiful story. Heartbreaking yet hopefultender and inspiring. Loved every word of this lovely written book.

    9. Julie on said:

      I started this book before bed and stayed up way too late to read. I don't usually start books late at night, but this one sounded like a book I could only read one chapter of and put it down for sleep. I was so wrong. It hooked me! And then, as soon as all the kids were at school, I came back to it. It is so compelling, I could hardly put it down. It's set just after World War II and is about a girl named Gita who has memories that she can't reconcile, but she wants/needs answers before she can [...]

      I won this First Reads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.I almost gave up on this book. The beginning is a little slow, and it was starting to feel a little pointless, like a YA novel lacking any depth.Just when I was about to give up, however, there was a significant plot twist that definitely made me glad I stuck with it. There were a few elements of the plot that I found a tad convenient, but I would still recommend this one. I don't know that I would have read this book if I hadn't w [...]

      I couldn't put this book down. The character Gita and her situation grabbed my attention immediately and I needed to know more of her story. As the book progressed I loved her relationship with the husband that was sent for her, her childhood memories that surface and then the twist that arrives at her door. I was very happy with how everything turned out at the end and was actually sorry when I finished the book. I won this as a Goodread Giveaway and will hang on to it to read again,even though [...]

      Secrets. Love. Pasts intertwined. What a great way to start out a writing career! Keep up the good work, Ms. King!Gita has blank memory spots in her past, a stranger for a husband in the present and the possibility of love and security in the future. I loved the flashbacks and the different storylines that kept me guessing right up until the end. I couldn't put the book down and read it in one afternoon. 5 STARSV: a little; scenes from a Nazi concentration campL: NoS: No. Some kissing

    13. Morgan Durbano on said:

      For me the book started out slow but, it got better as it progressed and I really enjoyed the ending. There was some minor punctuation and spelling errors that distracted me slightly. I thought all the connections between characters and their pasts were very artfully written. I enjoyed some of the tender moments between Gita and Max. I felt that Gita could have had a stronger personality for being the protagonist. But she grew through out the story. I liked how we learn about both Max and Gita's [...]

    14. Veena Rangaswami on said:

      I found the premise of this book intriguing, but it felt like King couldn't quite decide which direction she wanted to go in. Is it a romance novel? Is it a mystery? Is it a WW2 thriller full of intrigue and secrecy? It tried to be all of those things, and as a result I felt like nothing went into real depth. It was a quick read that I found as part of Kindle Unlimited, but ultimately I don't think it will have a lasting impact.

    15. Alissa on said:

      I thought this was a beautiful story. I loved how these character's lives were intertwined, and it's great to find a sweet, clean romance. It was great to get lost reading it for a couple of hours. WWII fiction isn't always my favorite, probably because of the horrors that came with that war. But it's always nice to read a little of the hope and humanity that sometimes surfaced during that dark, dismal time.

    16. Lisa on said:

      This is a truly beautiful story in so many ways, but the spelling and punctuation errors really distracted me and pulled me out of the story at times. The way the characters spoke also bothered me because the words and phrases used seemed too modern. But I wasn't alive in the 1950s, so what do I know? That said, the thought that our loved ones who have passed on are on "the other side of the stars" is a lovely one, and the letters and poems were beautifully written.

      Books about World War II and the concentration camps can sometimes be dark, but this book explores the hope and tenacity of those caught in an unthinkable situation. Read full review in the 2016 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    18. Jessica on said:

      The story definitely kept my attention! I read it in one day. Beautiful story. I only gave it 3 stars because the character's frequently used vocabulary that wasn't conducive to the time period, which distracted me sometimes. Also there were a lot of typos, which always makes me think I'm reading a rough draft. Other than that, it's a great story!

    19. Nancy on said:

      There are only a few books which I have read and not been able to put down. This book was one of those. It was a wonderful and sweet love story but also one which caused me to think and feel. She did a wonderful job of researching and making the characters come alive. I look forward to more from this author. Definitely worth reading

    20. Leigh on said:

      Extremely heartfelt story that will definitely keep you turning pages. This book is definitely full of surprises and so wonderful to read. Katherine King is exceptional with words, romance, and plot. So many different emotions and feelings are triggered in the book which makes it so much more real and enjoyable. You MUST read this!

    21. Lynn Hill on said:

      What a tender and haunting book for first time author Katherine King. To tackle such a tough and haunting subject as the Holocaust and find tender and gentle angels in the midst of it all give you faith that good really does exists. What a great job you did. I can not wait for your next book!! Thank you!

    22. Cassie Cox on said:

      This book was a pleasant surprise. The Other Side of the Stars is full so many twists, turns, and sweet surprises. Just when I thought I had things figured out, King whipped me quickly around another corner. The historical aspect of the novel also added a level of appeal for me.

    23. Cindy on said:

      This story started out slow, and what I thought was predictable. But then something I didn't expect happened, and from then on I couldn't put the book down.

    24. Alena Cox on said:
