"The New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code returns with an unforgettable World War II tale of a quiet bookworm who becomes history's deadliest female sniper. Based on a true story. In 1937 in the snowbound city of Kiev (now known as Kyiv), wry and bookish history student Mila Pavlichenko organizes her life around her library job and her young son--but Hitler's invasion of Ukraine and Russia sends her on a different path. Given a rifle and sent to join the fight, Mila must forge herself from studious girl to deadly sniper--a lethal hunter of Nazis known as Lady Death. When news of her three hundredth kill makes her a national heroine, Mila finds herself torn from the bloody battlefields of the eastern front and sent to America on a goodwill tour. Still reeling from war wounds and devastated by loss, Mila finds herself isolated and lonely in the glittering world of Washington, DC--until an unexpected friendship with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and an even more unexpected connection with a silent fellow sniper offer the possibility of happiness. But when an old enemy from Mila's past joins forces with a deadly new foe lurking in the shadows, Lady Death finds herself battling her own demons and enemy bullets in the deadliest duel of her life. Based on a true story, The Diamond Eye is a haunting novel of heroism born of desperation, of a mother who became a soldier, of a woman who found her place in the world and changed the course of history forever." --… (mere)

Fictionalization of a real life Russian sharp shooter. I didn't realize until the end that there was a pdf print out of the real woman who was decorated and was thought of as the best sharp shooter in the Russian army in WW2 as the Germans were invading their homeland. It also was interesting that the war took place in Odesa & Crimea, the Ukranian territory. Not sure if there was any underline reason for this book. A history lesson maybe. She did exist and she did have an ally and friend in Eleanor Roosevelt ( )

If you have not read Kate Quinn’s books…just do it!

I cannot get enough of her heroines and their absolutely insane stories! She does her homework and brings the raw reel of their lives to the surface among minute fictional storylines. I just love it! I was at the edge of my seat for this entire book and couldn’t put it down. For The Huntress and The Diamond Eye…long live Russian women…holy crap! ( )

Lyudmila Pavlichenko is a young university student studying history and raising her son. Her husband, Alexei, has abandoned them. When Nazis invade Russia, Mila finds herself in the military where her sharpshooter skills lead her to become a sniper. Working alongside her partner, Kostia, the two fight to protect their homeland until injuries and a retreat put them on a good will tour to America to enlist support in the war effort. However, the tour may prove more deadly than the battlefield as Mila faces old and new enemies.

Based on the true story of Pavlichenko, the novel explores the demands of wartime and the friendships that can cross borders and ideologies.

Very interesting book about the perspective from a sniper during WWII. Given that she is not your stereotype of killer snipper, the story make it a very interesting read. ( )

in the summer of 1942,

as the world was locked in war against Hitler,

a woman crossed the sea from the Soviet Union to the United States.

She was a single mother, a graduate student, a library researcher.

She was a soldier, a war herso,

a sniper with 309 kills to her name.

She was Russia's envoy, America's sweetheart,

and Eleanor Roosevelt's dear friend.

Her story is incredible. Her story is true.

Meet Lady Death.
