I didn't have high expectations for this book. It sounded good when I picked it off the shelf of my library, but not that good. But I was in for a great surprise.
Lenka and Josef meet when they are young adults and fall in love, in the final peaceful months before the outbreak of war. They marry later on, only to be separated just a few days later. Eventually, they both believe that one another has died, yet they never forget their young love, until the end.
This book was sweet, beautiful, tragic, and haunting. I didn't full out cry like I have before when reading Holocaust novels, but it did make me tear up a bit. I recommend this book though, I absolutely loved it.
