In Defense of Kate Breslin's For Such A Time

Kate Breslin

Political correctness does hinder creativity. Nothing authentic and original comes out of social conformity.

In this interview with Vampire author Anne Rice she claims that attempts to ‘take down’ Kate Breslin’s concentration camp romance For Such a Time with bad Amazon reviews amounts to censorship.

It appears that some people don't like the fact that a main character in Breslin's concentration camp romance leaves Judaism and becomes a Christian and a Nazi officer finds redemption. The argument is that Breslin is trying to reframe history. Some people are too easily offended! Breslin wrote a romance that speaks of personal transformation. That's a subject we all should consider and take to heart.
