really liked it

I picked this up at the library with five other books. I get a lot of books at the library, will start, and if it's good will read the whole book. If not, I'll quit 20 pages in.

It has two stories - one follows a French girl in 1941 trying to discover if her father was killed fighting the Germans. She meets a German soldier trying to find her father and a relationship begins. The other story follows a detective who is trying to figure out why a finger ends up in a rural farm in Cananda, 1946. The two stories combine in a most fantastic way.

This book was a total surprise. It is excellent. From the cover I was wondering if it would be a too sexual. Instead I was totally thrilled.

One of the best compliments I can give a book is if it is so good, I don't read the end because I don't want to ruin the enjoyment of the book unfolding. (90% of the books I read I end up reading the end long before I get anywhere near it.) This book I didn't skip to the end. I highly recommend it.
