What People Say About Twenty Three Years: Childhood, War, Escape

“It was so well written and such an easy read…I’m so grateful to Eve Monk for writing this and giving the world a chance to understand what it was like for the German people, and for children like her growing up in that horrible era.”


“This is an amazing story…could not put it down. An authentic story that places you next to the author. Highly recommend this book.”

Annie Downing

“While other similar memoirs are written from the perspectives of young people during the time of the conflict, Twenty-Three Years is written from the perspective of a woman almost 70 years removed from her struggle…an interesting perspective to consider to be sure.”

One thought on “About

  1. I have read Eve Monk’s most exceptional book. I live at the Arbors on Roscoe Crossing, Williamsburg. I would like to contact Eve to see if she would be interested in coming to the apartments to speak to and/or visit with some of the residents here. We could invite a small group to meet in my apartment, or the management could arrange a larger room for more to attend. Please forward my email to Eve so that she may contact me if she would like to arrange such a visit. Thank you, Ann Davis – email davisann751@gmail.com
