it was amazing
bookshelves: top-shelf-historical-fiction

So happy to end 2017 with another 5 star read! This was an incredible story, made even more so by the fact that it follows the true story of the author’s family’s experience during WW2. I’m glad I knew going into it that it was based on true happenings, as I think I might’ve had a different opinion of the ending were it not for that. The author’s note at the end was excellent (don’t read it before reading the novel though) and insightful and made me feel for the characters even more. My book club read this earlier in the year but I was unable to attend the meeting, and now really wish I had! I highly recommend this to readers that enjoyed The Nightingale and All the Light We Cannot See, though it ends more hopeful and positive than both of those novels.
