Read in October, 2009


A woman writes her story about how she was separated from her childhood love because of World War II. I have mixed feelings about this book. My heart broke for her because of the horrible and horrific things she had to endure but I didn't really like her as a person. I felt she was very self absorbed and her book did not flow very well. Her story is a tragedy because she continued to live in the past while trying to live a normal life on the surface. But, how can I blame her? Because of circumstances beyond her control she was forced to try and forget her first love and move on. Her problem was she couldn't really move on.

Not my favorite book but it was bearable for two reasons. 1. it made me think of how I react to circumstances beyond my control and 2. It gave me a real life glimpse into a young girl's mind and heart while living during WW2.
