's review

really liked it

World War ll. The Nazi's have occupied Holland. Its becoming more and more dangerous for the Jewish population. Professor Josef lives a solidarity life in Amsterdam when the Nazi occupation begins. Michael and Elke are madly in love. He is Jewish, she is Dutch. Students are disappearing as the Jewish students are being taken away. Where can they go? Who can they trust?

This book is loosely based on a true story. Josef and Michael are great characters who form a special bond. There's a greatmlist of characters who are true to life and believable. Josef puts his life at risk whilst trying to hide Michael. Be warned, this book will mess with your emotions. You will also find it hard to put down. It's beautifully written. A story of courage shown in difficult circumstances. At the end of this book, we are told the background of which this story is based on. Just make sure you have a box of tissues handy before you start reading this marvellous story.

I would like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture and the author Suzanne Kelman for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.
