it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

A German family must flee their home and head west to try to outrun the Russian army. A young French Jewish girl is living through the atrocities of a concentration camp and death marches. This story is told from a variety of viewpoints (Cecile, the French girl; Anna, the German daughter; Theo, the German son; Callum, the Scottish POW; Uri, the vigilante Jew living a double life) which makes for a very interesting story. It is moving, deeply disturbing, and shows the horror of war. Recommended if you enjoy WWII fiction.

Tara Chevrestt Hm.. I can't decide if I want to read it or not.. The different POV's have threw me off. Is it very confusing when they switch?

Erika Oh no, not confusing at all since it's not 1st person. It's very good.
