it was ok

In the first chapter it is 1945 close to the end of WW11, a mother leaves
her seven year old son alone at the train station. The next chapter takes you back to WWl and begins the story of Helen, the daughter of a
German father and Jewish mother who definitely has mental problems.
This is rather a long and laborious novel. In it you realize that major
Political events are taking place and everyone refuses to recognize what is happening. Definitely a dark story with a very disappointing ending.
