Susan Meissner's review
Aug 15, 2018
Read for the book club I'm in after having it on my nightstand, calling out to be read for more than a year. I can see why it's so beloved by its many readers and it's not hard to give it five stars for the beauty of the writing, the emotional depth of the characters and the raw and wrenching detailing of the brutality of WW2. The cover with those three women walking so close together has intrigued me from the moment I bought the book as a hardcover when it first came out. The actual story is different than what the cover projects, at least to me and many members of my club, but we decided it is up to the reader to decide who those three women are. If you've read the book, I'd be curious to hear if you agree. I was also unaware until I read the Acknowledgements that the character Caroline was a real person, a heroine any way you look at it, and someone I would've liked to have known. Highly recommend...
