Bestselling Australian author, Kelly Rimmer has recently penned, The Warsaw Orphan. The Warsaw Orphan enthrals readers with authentically woven moral dilemmas, complications and unavoidable truths of war.
In the spring of 1942, young Elzbieta Rabinek is aware of the swiftly growing discord just beyond the courtyard of her comfortable Warsaw home. But she has no idea what goes on behind the walls of the Jewish Ghetto nearby until she makes a discovery that propels her into a dangerous world of deception and heroism.
The Warsaw Orphan is Kelly’s most meticulously researched, compelling and emotional novel to date. Her family history saw her travel to Poland to research, which Kelly still says is ‘one of the best things she has ever done in her life’. She spent several weeks in Poland and her research had a profound affect on her, inspiring her writing, Kelly says the best fiction always contains threads of the personal.
