The Women of the Castle by Jessica Shattuck

Marianne is the wife of a German Nazi resister during WW2. She is a wealthy, highly educated German whose circle recognizes the danger that Hitler poses to the world. The men decide that Hitler must die and enter into a plot to assassinate him. Meanwhile, Marianne opens her home (an old German castle) to three of the resisters’ wives. What unfolds is a fascinating tale of three strong women and the very different paths they have chosen as they end up in the castle. I loved that the story tells of how murky the waters of our choices are and that we cannot know anyone fully.
