In December 1942, the Nazis deported Perl Kaczlowicz from the Plonsk ghetto in Poland and sent her to Ravensbrück, the infamous women-only concentration camp. She said goodbye to her husband that fateful morning not knowing she was expecting their first child, or that she would never see him again.

While imprisoned at the camp, she meets Helene Dvorak and other extraordinary women who risk their lives to save her and her baby from the brutality and unimaginable cruelty surrounding them. The women bond together to form friendships and lasting ties that endure through the horrors of the Holocaust and long after liberation.

From the hell of Ravensbrück to Montreal and Savanah, A Thousand Mothers tells the story of the resilient spirit of women and the astounding power of loyalty, courage, and love during the darkest days of the twentieth century.

Review quote

"Webb pens an intensely remarkable story in A Thousand Mothers. The story brings to life the horrors and strengths of survivors and victims in WWII Germany. This story was both powerful, raw, horrifying, and magnificent." - Amy's Bookshelf Reviews

"In decidedly dark times, our heroine shines like the sun. In an emotional debut novel, Webb writes with sensitivity about a weighty time in human history. Grab a handkerchief because A Thousand Mothers will make you smile and weep at the same time." -Indies Today

"A Thousand Mothers has warmed my heart and broken it both, several times already. The writing was beautiful. The one criticism I have is..it should be mandatory that this book comes with a box of Kleenex!" - Jenny Wonders

"Wow. Wow. Wow. Ranks at the top of my three most powerful reads. Brenda did an amazing job with such a difficult historical tragedy. So glad I read this!" - Tina Miller
