As is mentioned in a review in the back of the book, this story drives you on in the quest to find out exactly how the two stories weave themselves together, and of course how everything turns out in the end!

It also sent me on a mission to learn more about parts of history that I previously didn't know much about.

This book is beautiful. No other word for this.

I loved the story of the twins, Albrecht and Gerhard and their friend Nate. What I didn't like is,the story of Fika. Even though Fika is pretty important, I just found her part of the story boring. Even though everything about Siberia and the ice and snow is beautifully written and wonderfully described, I found it boring.

This is a wonderful book, it is. About friendship, broken marriages, about Germany and the second world war.
