I had no expectations for this book, I chose it because it was short, the blurb made it sound interesting and I thought I would give it a go. The subject of taboo love and relationships, illiteracy, personal shame, world war 2, conflicts of working under orders, the holocaust and Germany coming to terms with the war are all in this story written like a memoir.

It was a one day holiday read which kept me engaged for a few hours.
